When we visited in September 2012, much of the museum was closed for renovation, which was very disappointing. The parts that were open were fascinating - a look back at a place that loomed large in the national consciousness. The video of clips of TV shows that were set in Brooklyn (Honeymooners, etc.) and references to Brooklyn brought back many memories. I was surprised that the staff didn't offer a discount, considering how much was closed, but I would go back sometime when it's all open.
