The leadership at this museum has managed to present great exhibitions that attract a lively, diverse crowd. I love going there. Plus they have First Saturdays with free music, screenings, etc.

Great permanent collection displayed is both easy to take overview section as well as in depth in respective galleries. The special exhibitions are usual great treats. The sports photography/photographers one is a real eye opener.

Interesting as an English person to see the American history items. Really enjoyed the Iggy Pop life class but best of all is Judith Chicago's Dinner Party

Traveling from our hotel to the Museum by Uber was a first for me. Was not my last Uber drive, which works well.The museum was started in the early 18002, and a modest collection. Obviously a poor relative for the Metropolitan Museum, but still worth seeing. A special exibition was sports photos.There were a few Monets and Rodin's.Worth the trip... More

Do not miss! Never crowded and the collections are stunning. Plan on at least four hours. Next door to Prospect Park and the Arboretum. You could spend an entire day here and find it wasn't enough. You may want to return?

While staying at the Brooklyn Marriott I coerced a group of business colleagues to swing over to the Museum to see a special exhibit entitled " who shot sports". We easily made it there as a lunch time field trip. Spent an hour looking a wonderful, evocative and iconic moments in sports over our lifetime. Don't miss this wonderful exhibit... More

We visited the Brooklyn Museum November 10, 2016 and were amazed at the diversity of the exhibits and permanent collections on view. We were thrilled to find the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, which is the home to the Judy Chicago installation - The Dinner Party. The first known surviving oil portrait painted by JS Sargent is hanging... More

Spacious museum with some really edgy and provocative art exhibits. Free entrance every first Friday of the month, starting in the early evening. There are free public performances, including concerts and standup comedy. Saw a burlesque show with a political theme at their auditorium when I visited.

It's one of those museums that you can't possibly take in all at once, but get yourself in there and see what you can for as much time as you have. You won't be disappointed.

I spent three days touring the museum and am sure I did not see everything. The museum was on my bucket list and it did not disappoint. If you are into ancient civilizations, check out the wonderful exhibit they have; it will blow your mind!
