My favorite part about the Brooklyn Museum is the diversity of the art shown. It ranged from street art to traditional 18th century to Native American to Egyptian art. My favorite was Zanele Muholi's special exhibit. Even better, even during the fourth of July weekend it wasn't crowded. I recommend it for everyone who wants to see a neat museum... More

Definitely worth the trip out here. This museum was quiet in comparison to one I visited in Manhattan. Their collection of Egyptian artifacts was quite impressive. Don't be put off visiting here because of it's location. Do yourself a favour and go.

Renovated a few years back has only made it better to suit all who visit with Wonderous displays for everyone to enjoy, hundreds visit everyday . Or just sit outside and enjoy the water display with many others.

This is a great little museum, spent a very hot afternoon in here and loved it. An eclectic mix of art. I loved the ground floor exhibit. Perfect for Prospect Park too,

The building is gorgeous. Nicely done exhibits which change frequently. Brooklyn theme gifts are reasonable.

Perfect small museum right next to Botanical Garden, ideal place to spend a couple hours, and...has great little restaurant inside, as well as small cafe...perfect for brunch. Easy to get to (subway across the street, and huge never full parking behind). Not the Met, but a very accessible institution that has some great shows as well.

The exhibits were easy to walk through and take in, and the guards were helpful. The location is good, right next to a library and an extensive park and botanical garden. And the cafe and restaurant... More
