This museum is generally "pay what you will", except for ticketed exhibits. Collections include a surprisingly robust Egyptian collection, arts of Asia, and the American art on the 5th floor, which is worth a trip.

The Brooklyn Museum is easily accessible from Manhattan on the 2 or 3 line--the museum entrance is across the street from the subway. It is a 5 story museum with exhibits that are child and adult friendly. It's never crowded so you can take your time viewing the exhibits. Their hours are very convenient and the pricing is fair. 19... More

The Museum has some very interesting and amusing works. The museum has about 5 levels which are all equally exciting to see. A great place for everyone

First time visiting the BK museum and I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed it, we went on the floors to view the contemporary and more risky art. We had our college ID's so we only paid $10 to get in, there is a coat check which is also nice. There are some really cool gifts in the gift shop.... More

I'm used to feeling something when I visit museums. Enthralled, excited, engaged - something. I didn't feel a thing when I visited this museum. I think it's very well curated - the collections I saw were great - but I felt no connection to any of it. They didn't pull me in and make me feel lost in time in... More

The Brooklyn Museum always has some new interesting exhibition going on, so it's worth a visit every few months. The museum is the perfect size, not too much, not too little. Pairing it with a visit to the botanical garden right next door is most ideal, or to the public library, or even just a walk in Prospect Park. There... More

Ive been going to this museum for years now and this time was no different. The staff were warmand welcoming. Theyve added some cool exhibits like Infinite Blue and the Iggy Pop one. There are 5 levels and theyre all super interesting. During the week its quiet and definitely one of Brooklyns gems.
