Join us and the National Lighthouse Museum for Brilliant Minds: The science of lighting the night. We'll play with light, exploring original lighting methods, Fresnel lenses, and lighthouse automation. Projects may include solar marshmallow roasters, bending light with prisms, and experiments making light flash.

This program is designed for children and their caregivers. 


Culture Pass

Culture Pass is a program for cardholding patrons of New York City’s public libraries, Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library. Culture Pass doesn't just give library patrons the chance to visit museums and theaters across the city—we also work with our partners to bring these amazing institutions into branches in all five boroughs.  Visit for programs and learn about our city's cultural community. 


Culture Pass programming is made possible through generous funding from the Charles H. Revson Foundation and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
