The Green Museum

After an expansion spearheaded by Rafael Viñoly Architects and the NYC Department of Design and Construction, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum became New York City’s first LEED-certified museum.

As a proactive community institution, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum not only adopted sustainable features and practices, but also provides youth-focused educational materials and resources. For more information, visit their blog: Teach Green in Brooklyn.
