It is a small museum, compared to the exhibition in metropolitan, although its building is large. The museum is really spatial. Not crowded like Moma. However, there are not as many as collections. It is a good place for dating. The admission is cheap too.

This is a pleasant art museum not affected by the vast number of visitors attracted to its Manhattan cousins and that has to be a plus point. It’s in Brooklyn and very easy to get to and very spacious and airy but somehow it doesn’t quite seem to make the best use of the exhibition space it has. This is... More

Easy to get to from Manhattan -- you can go to the museum and have lunch a few blocks away in one of the coolest neighborhoods in town -- not a high priority place to go but one well worth doing -- the collection is kind of uneven but they do have some fun special exhibits

Well curated and friendly, as well as spacious this museum has a lot going for it. I had hope for more history though.

Some great American and contemporary world art. There does seem to me to be a lot of open space which is not best utilised. When we visited level 2 was closed, the Islamic art level. A terrific exhibition on the set of sports photography at the time of writing.

The Brooklyn Museum is always a great date night spot. Usually visit every first Saturday of the month for the Target sponsored night. Various themes take over the halls of the Brooklyn Museum and it's free all night. The museum usually has various exhibitions through the year in the space. There's something interesting for everyone to enjoy.
