Harlem’s first children’s museum will opens to the public. The Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling will provide children and families a state-of-the-art facility and space to grow and learn through encounters with art and accomplished artists and storytellers, as well as opportunities to create art in multiple fully-equipped studios. Developed by Broadway Housing Communities and designed by David Adjaye, the 17,000 square-foot facility is located in the historic district of Sugar Hill, at the intersection of the traditionally African-American community of Harlem and the Latino community of Washington Heights/Inwood, and adjacent to the ethnically diverse communities of the South Bronx.
