A city the size of Brooklyn deserves a huge grand museum like this. Extensive collection covering lots of art periods, but the American art and Egyptian collection are the best. Very good signage wth just enough info. Grand building.

Loved the Judy Chicago installation- The Dinner. Also enjoyed the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. Maybe not one of the must-see museums of NYC but worth a visit if you're in Brooklyn.

Hi All, I have seen many reviews that say that BK Museum has a great Egyptian collection. I'm looking to visit a collection that's really informative and engaging. I've been to the Met, but I find the collection kind of boring. BK's Egyptian looks from pictures to be very different. What did you think about it? Did you find it informative and fun? I'm looking to take some out-of-towners who have an interest in ancient Egypt to one of the local museums and I'm trying to decide where. Thanks!
