Brooklyn Museum

Great museum! Wish second floor had been opened. Loved walking and seeing all exhibits on first, third and fourth floors.

You asked me to review the visit that I had rated. I never rated it, however, it is a wonderful museum.

Surprisingly complete and extensive collection in line with other top museums, and well worth the trip from Manhattan -and anywhere else.

A friend recommended a visit here when I mentioned we would stay at a hotel in Brooklyn. Great collection, interesting approach to grouping art by theme. Home of Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. Perfect size for a few hours or a full day. Cafe food was lovely, and an outdoor patio was great for a lunch break.

A great museum with a smallish, but excellent collection. Not one of the overwhelming NYC museums that wrings you out.

You walk through the dayglo painted... More

Judy Chicago's Dinner Party exhibit is a must see. Get the audio tour and prepare to spend some time.

Great museum, beautiful inside and outside. I love their Egyptian collection. A smaller version of the Metropolitan Museum and a great option for those who would like to take break from the always crowded museums in Manhattan.

I was surprised how unimpressed I was with the way the exhibitions were displayed except for the Faile exhibition. Sneakers could have been so much better. I like the ask app - quick informed questions

My entire family really enjoyed this museum. I particularly enjoyed it because it was large enough to be able to spend a few hours, but not so large that it is overwhelming. The exhibits were well done and interesting. We also took the subway and it was very close to the subway stop. I would highly recommend it for a... More
