I loved this museum--a definite must-see in Brooklyn. The period rooms and mummy exhibit were highlights. Not crowded or touristy and reasonably priced. A great experience.

Visited with a tour group of college students. The first stop was the Killer Heels exhibit. This is a must see exhibit that has been extended so check it out by March. The museum is spread out and offered some very interesting exhibits. I liked the wrist band tickets. This kept if visible without have to reach into your pocket... More

Went with a friend to see the Killer Heels exhibit and it was a great exhibit. It was very well done but wish the heels were lighted more. However, they way they had videos throughout and information about each set of heels spanning from the first to more recent ones was very informative and interesting. In addition to the special...

It's one of the more interactive art museums. You can watch videos on how the art was used and you can flip through books to get more information about what your looking for. The recommended price for a adult Is $16 but you can pay whatever you think. The museum was doing renovations on level 2 at the time I... More

Take a trip to Brooklyn and visit this great museum, it equals and possibly beats anything Manhattan has to offer and from a tourist point of view is much less busy, Loved the Killer Heel, European paintings and the Egyptian exhibitions and should really have allocated a little more time as this place is huge and warrants probably a whole...

To get away from the Manhattan crowd we found this isle of culture and calm at the Brooklyn Museum. Great architecture, spacious and fantastic exhibitions including a very interesting and different one "Killer Heels: The Art of High-Helled shoe. I would recommend to anyone that is looking for an nice dose of culture out of Manhattan circuit. They also have... More

On our first visit, we went on a 1st target Sunday to see its free attractions. It was great to see so many simultaneous activities: concerts in the main hall, dance on the third floor ... we took the opportunity to see also its temporary exhibitions (one very interesting on killing heels) and the permanent one. I was impressed that,... More

My third year of BMA membership and have gotten my money's worth. The BMA hosts wonderful free receptions every few month which include wine & cheese, an opportunity to see the new exhibit before the general public. My memories of the museum go back over half a century because my parents took me there when I was a child and... More
