My favorite part of my visit was seeing the period rooms and the decorative arts displayed. Also visited the special exhibit on African American art which showed that their struggles of 50 years ago are as relevant today. Sad we have not made more progress.

Very interesting building, not crowded, as its in Brooklyn. We went to see the David Bowie exhibit, but enjoyed the exhibits on the way. Definitely worth crossing the bridge and visiting.

Amazing museum, very easy to get to - subway station right out side the front door. We went to the David Bowie is exhibition which was amazing but then also went for a wonder through the other parts of the museum. Wonderful

I visited on the recommendation of a friend and I'm so happy I did. Excellent museum without the mad crowds of The Met or Guggenheim. Great exhibitions, and a modern layout, the room and house re-creations are very good.

I have always wanted to see Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party, and it does not disappoint. Photographs only give you a partial idea of its scope and impact in person. It creates a lot of discussion points you can have with your friends and family about...More

This museum has it all: A fantastic permanent collection, which includes Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party (don't miss it!), plus a beautiful building, a great, central location, helpful staff, free coat check, and other amenities. On Thursday evening, the museum stays open till 10 pm....More

We went in the week rather than a Saturday and even then we could only book a slot some 2 hours later. We went to other exhibits first then enjoyed the snack bar but there is a classy restaurant too. Get there when it opens... More

I can only base on my experience. We showed up at the exhibition on time, but waited in a queue for at least 20 min before our passes were scanned and we entered.
