    Their permanent collection is always interesting for all ages. One of my favorite places to go in New York is their Visible Storage Study Center. I could spend hours there discovering new pieces.

    Check out The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art on the 4th floor for an incredible tribute to some of history's most important women.

    The Brooklyn Museum traces its roots back to 1823, almost fifty years before Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum of Art was born. Its Egyptian collection is regularly ranked one of the best in the world. Read more

    My experience was cool! I like how it's pay what you want. I was intrigued by the blue section and happy to see a Jean-Michel Basquiat original. I even witnessed some conservation/restoration.

    A world-class museum right in the heart of Brooklyn, mixing art alongside historical artifacts and contemporary culture. I love how connected the curators of the museum are with social media.

    One of my favorite NYC museums- the exhibits are curated so well and often tell a fresh story about the artist. The architecture is also stunning on its own.

    One of my fave museums in the city, always with fresh & interesting exhibits in a beautiful space. Free on the first Sat of the month w live music & talks from 5-11pm, but any day is awesome here.

    A gem of a museum with a large and varied collection. This is something you would expect in the tourist areas of the city, but not in Brooklyn. To see what is going on, check out their website Read more

    The borough’s largest museum is a must. With more than 1 million pieces to see, it’s easy to get lost among the Colonial era art,Egyptian antiquities & peculiar collection of South Pacific artifacts.

    Museum is consistently dedicated to exhibiting works ranging from unknown, cutting edge artists to more traditional works in the same space and it's always a wonderful juxtaposition and inspiration.

    Absolutely worth a visit. Great well rounded museum you can run through in an afternoon. A mini Met with similar collections and organization. Just more contemporary. Amazing building.

    It's always fun to visit the permanent installation of "The Dinner Party," though I miss the printed guide, which, for me, is necessary to know who is/was whom. Too much to see in a single visit.

    Very nice collection - small, but well curated. Their African Art collection is amazing and they have done a great job with their Egyptian collection: unique pieces, well presented.

    Good signage. Not as extensive as the Met's collection, but the crowds are significantly smaller. Don't miss the Assyrian reliefs -- fascinating, and incredibly ancient.

    One of my favorite museums! I just love the juxtapositions here. You can see a lot of classics and a lot of contemporary art side by side. Also, Duke Riley’s Erika mesmerized me.

    First Saturdays are wonderful, and the museum's got a great collection of feminist art. It's a neighborhood institution and one of the best museums in NYC.
