The Brooklyn Museum has a great location, next to a subway entrance and the building itself is beautiful. The entrance was very easy, we didn't have to stand in line at all and the fee is actually a suggested contribution. The galleries are very well distributed and had great variety. There's a nice cafeteria on the first floor with great... More

Great collections if you are into antique objects. With that said, exhibitions here are very broad and diverse. Great place to go to if you want to se some modern american art.

Being in a museum is like going back in time and places like this one has those qualities and is very accessible via mass transit from Manhattan and several buses in the area.

Brooklyn museum is an extremely cultural place that allows the audience an opportunity to view local art as well as some of the most famous artist from around the world. The museum also holds first saturdays of the month, which is a great opportunity for young people to network and hang out in a more social way.

Had never considered going here until a friend wanted to visit the Dinner Party exhibit here. That was fascinating as were the decorative arts exhibits. Loved the room exhibits from all eras and types of NYC housing. Most pleasantly surprised with the museum. Friend's daughter who works at Museum of City of New York indicated she felt it was as...

Brooklyn Museum is a place where you can lose yourself for several hours taking in different cultures & artifacts. Lovely way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Become a member - makes it easier to navigate the large crowds that converge there on weekends & First Saturdays (when it's free). The exhibits rotate - right now there is Sneaker... More

The Brooklyn Museum is, rightfully, well known for its excellent Egyptian collection. The special collections on the top floor, however, are also not to be missed as they are almost always very tastefully done and provide fascinating insights into new movements in art that you might otherwise miss.

Located within walking distance and close the the famous Botanical Grarden , the Brooklyn Library , Grand Army a Plaza this museum adds another attraction for the tourists . The very impressive red brick grand entrance welcomes you . The display is priceless and brings the history closer .to the present . There is an entrance fee .
