    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you can get there before August, check out the exhibit Grace and Gravity by Ghanaian artist El Anatsui. A beautiful use of found metals such as bottle caps and lids to create a dynamic exhibit.

    There are some wonderful surprises in the Luce Center for American Art, such as an array of Latin American Spanish Colonial paintings, silverwork, polychrome sculpture, and furniture. Don't miss it!

    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.

    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.

    Not too thrilled about the $15 park fee. Lived in Park Slope when I was a girl and never went to this park. Long overdue, the exhibits were interesting but the air conditioning was spotty.

    Checkout the HIDE/SEEK exhibit if you get a chance. It's the same exhibition known best for the controversy it caused in DC when it first opened in October of 2010 at the National Portrait Gallery.

    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.

    Established and themed exhibits rotate throughout the year; the public amphitheater entrance makes for a popular people-watching and lunch hour gathering spot.

    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.

    Stop by the Brooklyn Roasting Company stand in the lobby, but only after you finish with the museum (they don't tell you that you can't bring drinks inside)

    Be aware that First Friday here is not about culture. It goes from education to club in a matter of minutes. I do not get it. Half of the individuals have never seen a museum in their life...
