Bomb Scare Empties Jewish Children's Museum; Stated 3 Pipe Bombs Would Go Off at Busy Hour

The popular Jewish Children's Museum in Crown Heights, Brooklyn was evacuated today (March 9, 2017) in response to a bomb threat received by the museum's director at around 10:10 a.m., according to the Jewish Press website.

The text of the message -- sent by cell phone notification -- claimed that three pipe bombs were "scattered throughout the museum" and set to detonate "via a cell phone" at a "busy hour of the day."

FBI officials and a bomb squad were on the scene along with the New York Police Department, which called for a Level One mobilization.

The museum is a popular site for schools and other children's groups to learn about Judaism in a hands-on, experiential manner.
