Last week it was winter break here in New York. And since we only moved here 4 month ago, we decided to stay in town and try out some of the kid friendly attractions the city has to offer. It was extremely cold, so we mainly went for indoor activities. Maybe you feel like trying some of them out, if you should ever end up in New York with young kids when it is freezing cold outside.

Here you have our 5 indoor favorite things to do with kids in New York:

1. American National History Museum Both my kids love to walk around and look at the dinosaurs, the butterflies and the huge selection of taxidermy animals. Read more here.

2. Brooklyn Children’s Museum A colorful and playful museum especially made for kids. Go shopping in “World-Brooklyn”, play with water, study plants, draw or participate in one of the many events held through out the day. Read more here.

3. New York Public Library If your kids like to read books, then they will love the huge kids space at the New York Public Library. Here you will find all kind of books, a weekly lego building event and cozy environment. Read more here.

4. Children’s Museum of Manhattan Another kids museum located in Manhattan. Theme-based exhibitions, daily activities, hands-on activities and an interactive environment. Read more here.

5. Schwarz Toy Store This is actually just a toy store. But with the huge size, the great selection of stuffed animals that comes in all sizes and big piano on which you can dance and play at the same time, you can easily spend an hour or two at this place. And believe it or not, we have often been there without spending any money. Read more here.

Sidste uge var skolernes vinterferie her i New York. Og da det kun er 4 måneder siden vi flyttede hertil, besluttede vi at blive i byen og udforske nogle af dens børnevenlige attraktioner. Og fordi temperaturen ofte var nede på – 10 grader, gik vi hele ugen igennem efter indendørs ting. Måske du skulle få lyst til at udforske nogle af dem, hvis du på et tidspunkt skulle befinde dig i New York med små børn.

Her er 5 af vores indendørs børnevenlige favoritter:

1. American National History Museum Ligesom alle andre børn, elsker min døtre at gå rundt og se på sommerfugle, dinosaurus skeletter og udstoppede dyr. Læs mere her.

2. Brooklyn Children’s Museum Et fint lille børnemuseum med masser af ting at give sig til. Brug et par timer her, hvis du alligevel er ude for at udforske Brooklyns mange fine områder. Læs mere her.

3. New York Public Library Hvis dit barn godt kan lide at kigge i bøger og læse, så vil han eller hun helt sikkert elske byens smukke bibliotek, der har et kæmpet rum indrettet kun til børnebøger og aktiviteter. Læs mere her.

4. Children’s Museum of Manhattan Et andet børnemuseum, der byder på tema-baserede udstillinger, daglige aktiviteter og learning by doing. Bemærk at man ikke må spise på museet, så sørg for at få fodret små poder inden i går ind. Læs mere her.

5. Schwarz Toy Store Det kan godt være det bare er en legetøjsbutik. Men med den enorme størrelse (tænk et mini Magasin kun med legetøj) dens kæmpe udvalg i tøjdyr, der kommer i alle størrelser, og det store gulv-klaver, hvor børn (og barnlige sjæle) kan danse og spille klaver på samme tid, kan der let bruges en time eller to herinde. Perfekt at kombinere med en gåtur i Central Park. Læs mere her.
