What a great museum to visit. It has five floors of Art work, paintings, sculptures. Special exhibits are always coming and going every couple of months so there's always something new to see. At the moment the second floor's been closed for quite a while for renovation. The third floor has a great Egyptian section with real mummies. Great rainy... More

The museum was recently renovated to add a public outdoor space inspired by the famous "Brooklyn stoop;" but the real treasures are inside. One of the most interesting exhibits are the period houses. This museum is a much better choice to The Met if you'd like to enjoy the Art with smaller crowds.

This is a world class Museum often ignored or overshadowed by the major Museums in Manhattan. It is worth the trip. Public transportation is available. It is also adjacent to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

Very socially conscious exhibitions, from AgitProp - about propaganda and advertising globally and historically up to the present, to Judy Chicago's DINNER PARTY installation. Also period homes, including the actual wood shingle structure from Dutch New York to 1920s Modern, and other more museumlike collections in between, there is a a great variety of things to see. Not a huge... More

Such a huge building! There were just a few impressionism paintings a bit difficult to get a good pic since they all were covered with glass! On the other hand, The Egyptian and Assirian halls were magnificent with some of the sarcophagi artistictly restored. Here, there were also the small blue famous "hippos" ( like "William" at the MET).. Other... More

The study of history frequently intersects with art, and this museum provides many examples of this phenomena. Sometimes as I wandered through this building, I saw many artifacts that had me thinking somebody knew of a building that was being torn down, and they said, "Hey, this is pretty cool! What should we do with it?" So it ends up... More

We have visited museums across the country. Other than ones with a beautiful setting ( like Crystal Bridges) this is one of our very favorite museums. There are various mediums to please all types of visitors. Excellent presentation of exhibits. Fun for all ages. When we were there, I it was an exhibit of Coney Island- fun!
