HR Coordinator

Bronx Children's Museum
Bronx Children’s Museum is a new kind of multicultural, Bronx-inspired children’s museum operating “with and without walls'' geared to those from infancy through fourth grade. The Museum engages 16,000 children and their caregivers/families annually with programming in schools and after school, at community-based organizations, shelters, libraries, local festivals and parks. BxCM just opened the first children’s museum facility in the history of the Bronx, a 13,000 sq. ft. space in a historic, City-owned building located in a park in the South Bronx. The Museum views outreach programs as complementary to and an extension of those in the building, and vice versa. Check out our website to see our space!
