A must-see.

The collection of antiquities is exceptional. As well, it is far less busy than the Manhattan art museums. Also, one should check on the current traveling exhibit.

This place is lovely, so many things to see. A lot of people who visit our City will head straight to the big museums but the small ones are the best. As someone else pointed out, the spaces are large, so be prepared for lots of walking/rolling. The cafe is somewhat pricey w/very limited options. Bring your own food and... More

Unusually large display spaces, well used. Only had 2 hours. Could easily have spent 2 more. Mostly did the special exhibits, and they were well thought out. Locals advised checking out the remainder on a future trip and we will.

This museum is a gem. If it was in any other city it would be the best museum in town. Because it is in New York, and in one of the boroughs it gets overlooked and ignored. It is a great museum with a great collection on Hudson River School and Egyptian Art. Make a point of taking a morning... More

The Brooklyn museum is a fantastic museum that is way less popular then it should be. Easily accessible via the 2 or 3 train the museum has introduced a really cool app which allows you to chat with experts about art you see at any point in the museum. This is actually a lot of fun and greatly enhances the... More

The current special exhibition of the history of sports photography is fabulous. Don't miss seeing the 86 Leini Reifenstal photos of the 1936 Berlin Olympics that she put together in a book as a Christmas present to her Fuhrer. Be warned that the cafe has no posted price list. We had one tuna sandwich, a small bowl of stew and... More

I enjoyed their collections, their setup. It's not like the Met or the Moma which are huge. Easy to get to via subway.

I always enjoy a visit to the Brooklyn Museum. Admission prices are a suggested contribution. Museum is free from 5 to 11 p.m. on the first Saturday of every month. The gift shop is well curated and they offer a variety of local Brooklyn books.
