    What to Expect
    Visit: Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238-6099

    Brooklyn Museum is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States. Its roots extend back to 1823 and the founding of the brooklyn Apprentices' Library to educate young tradesmen (Walt Whitman would later become one of its librarians).

    The Brooklyn Museum was conceived as the focal point of a planned cultural, recreational, and educational district for the burgeoning city of Brooklyn. Although the scope of that envisioned complex of parks, gardens, and buildings changed after the once-independent Brooklyn was absorbed into New York City in 1898, many features of the plan were eventually realized and are reflected in what can be seen today.

    In recent years, the Museum has focused on redesigning its galleries and reinstalling its major collections to make them more accessible to the public. Flowing spaces, vivid wall colors, dramatic graphic elements, and multimedia components feature in many of these reconfigured galleries.

    The collections of American painting and sculpture, with significant additions from Spanish colonial and Native American art, were reorganized in 2001 to form the long-term installation “American Identities: A New Look” within completely reconceived gallery spaces.

    With a mission to create inspiring encounters with art that expand the ways we see ourselves, the world and its possibilities, visiting this museum is an educational and cultural experience not to be missed!

    Brooklyn Museum shows the best of their collection. Tastefully crafted. Not overwhelming. The artworks are outstanding in a well spaced venue.
