    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Awesome museum, with free admission if you go at the right time. Plus - awesome changing exhibits, like the incredible Faile exhibit.

    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.

    Great exhibits here. I saw their killer heel exhibit and I know they hosted Ai Weiwei's show earlier this year. Worth the trek from Manhattan

    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.

    Jean Paul Gaulter exhibit is awesome. Love coming to this museum especially the first Saturday of the month. Great atmosphere even more so in the summer when they have the music parties

    good size for a 2-3 hour visit. free, but suggested donation is worth it. Not crowded and packed - well spread out

    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.

    Quite the gem in Brooklyn. Galleries upon Galleries of world class art all in the heart of Brooklyn. Visit the Gardens next door when the weather is nice.

    a sometimes under appreciated cultural gem in the heart of Brooklyn. it's good to see that despite the gentrification the spirit of the borough lives on inside

    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.

    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.

    Outstanding ancient Egypt collection! And a beautiful park. I can't understand why this museum is not usually listed as a top museum attraction of NY. :-)

    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 the best! Cool music, crafts, booze and art. Plus the museum is open until 11pm which is great for late risers like me.

    Thought the 'Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland' exhibit was an interesting look at a New York institution's growth and change with America society through art #coneyvisions

    Come see the small GO exhibit. It gives you an idea of what Brooklyn artists currently does. Make sure check out the iPad with all open studios weekend images! Nice project! Up till Feb 18, 2013

    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)

    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!

    Great African Art exhibit on the 5th floor. Beat event and opening had nothing about the 60's Beat Generation which was disappointing.

    We visited to see Basquiat Notebook and Faile & Bast. Basquiat was very moving to see his genius on paper.

    The contemporary art work here always amazes me. Brooklyn Museum is my favorite in NYC. The overpriced cafe is the only downside.

    The civil rights exhibit was interesting. I must go back for the Feminism exhibit... I had the children along and it was a bit xrated...😊
