I went to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Egyptology collection. It is probably their largest collection and is quite good. The building is a fine piece of architecture both within and without. The dining facilities are good if you get hungry. It is also right next to Prospect Park which is a great Frederick Law Olmstead park. Down the... More

I remember the museum when I took art classes there in the 1960s. Has changed quite a bit but has not lost its innovative edge. Wide variety of exhibits to please everyone.

Came here because it was raining and we couldn’t walk around Coney Island. Kids under 19 are free unless you want to see the main art exhibition. They have a suggested donation, but you can pay what you want. It’s a nice museum and we spent about 2 hours here walking around and just sitting people watching.

We took the subway to see the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit and I really recommend it. Her paintings are tied in with the clothes she wore which are also in the exhibit. Many of the outfits she made. She lived in New York and many of her paintings in the exhibit I had never seen. There is a great painting of... More

My husband and I went here on a Friday and had a great time. We started with the O'Keefe special exhibit--it is a must see. The exhibit explores O'Keefe's sartorial tastes and displays her clothes alongside her paintings. Her first museum exhibit was at the Brooklyn Museum in 1927, so it's a very cool homage to her 90 years later.... More

We really enjoyed our visit. Our only complaint was that it was very crowded and the cafeteria was overrun. That said, we enjoyed sharing a table with a local!
