Love
Oct 2021
I love this museum and unless there is a big event happening it's always nearly empty. If you want to wander around by yourself and look at some incredible art and artifacts it's a great place.

Kaws: What Party Visit
Aug 2021 • Friends
I went here for the Kaws: What Party exhibit. I was born, raised and still live in NY and don’t remember ever going to this museum. It’s a beautiful building and we wandered a few rooms after the exhibit. Wish I could have spent more time here so I will definitely go back. I went on a Wednesday and I was able to find parking on the next block over in front of the botanical gardens. They do have a parking lot but we had gotten there about 40 minutes before the museum actually opened which ended up being perfect since we found parking easy and walked down the block to grab a bite to eat before going in.

Better than the MOMA?
Outstanding, neat and clean. Went with my wife and daughter (21). Great mix of modern and antique art. An interesting Egyptian room. Close to the subway, a wonderful way to spend an afternoon

If you have Egyptomania, go here!

Went here for the Egyptian galleries and was not disappointed. I spent 4 1/2 hours and didn't see anything but that section. Well worth a visit!

What a gem!
Apr 2021
The Egyptian collection here is not made up of the most noteworthy historical items, but their quality is outstanding. We have been to many museums with Egyptian artifacts throughout the world, but this has to be the best collection and presentation overall that we have encountered. Well worth the trip, but don't miss the great European and American works of art there as well. Outstanding.

One of my favorite NYC museums
Feb 2021
Next to AMNH, this is probably one of my top NYC museums so far. It’s large enough to offer a variety of art, yet not so large it’s overwhelming and exhausting like the MET.

They have an impressive gallery focusing on black lives and slavery. A great feature gallery was there when I visited, focusing on the work of John C. Edmonds and how black people and how connect to the world and their past.

They have a mix of classic and modern art.

My favorite part of the museum is their open storage/archive unit, which shows you a variety of pieces they don’t have out, but have in storage. All stored in glass cases for you to view. Unique and beautiful.

The building itself is also beautiful and impressive, with lots of expansive, light filled common spaces for patrons and community alike.

My ticket was only 16.00—significantly lower than other museums—so you also get bang for your buck.

Make time for this one. It could be a great half day trip—two to three hours in the museum, followed by a visit to The Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Grand Army Plaza, and/or Prospect Park.
