Large museum, need more than an afternoon

Great museum, quite large. Went to the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit, which was great. More than you can see in an afternoon.

The Brooklyn Museum is absolutely without a doubt a first tier museum featuring arts and cultural exhibits that range from early Dutch settler's houses to the most avant garde of modern art. It's really hard to overstate it: You MUST see this fantastic Brooklyn resource and you will need at least a couple of trips to do it well. The... More

This is a bit if a hidden gem, but hidden in plain sight. They often times have special exhibits, like the one on sports photographs and one on Coney Island. It would take more than a single visit to see everything. Highly recommended.

The Brooklyn Museum in a world-class museum. It has one of the best Egyptian art collections in the world. It has also put on a number of outstanding exhibits. One favorite was the 2013 John Singer Sargent "Watercolors." Kudos to the museum for also exhibiting the works of important new artists, like Ai Weiwei,,El Anatsui, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley and... More

A great night out is First Saturday at the Museum. It's right next to the Botanic Gardens and shares a parking lot. Visit the website for each month's special events. Any other time you can start out just enjoying the architecture of the place, or the Mummys and their amazing collection of art work.

My friend and I schlepped out to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Georgia OKeefe exhibit. It was one of the best curated art exhibitions that I've seen. It was a fairly equal mix of the OKeefes paintings together with photography of her, and actual articles of clothing from the long span of her life. She had a studied, well... More

A simply beautiful building in the heart of Brooklyn, which houses some amazing artwork. When you consider the crowds you have to battle in, say, the Met, this was an oasis of calm and we spent a lovely couple of hours there. The special exhibition on Georgia O'Keeffe was fascinating and the Dinner Party installation by Judy Chicago is worth... More

I enjoyed my recent visit to the Brooklyn Museum. It was quite large so I wouldn't plan on seeing the entire museum in one day. I visited the Egyptian Collection and a few of the special exhibitions as well and found the art to be interesting. The wall text was sometimes annoying patronizing, but overall very informative. Definitely worth the... More

We have wanted to visit this museum for sme time. An easy trip from Chelsea with number 1 train with a change at Chambers St to 2 or 3 brings you to the Eastern Parkway right outside the museum. We wanted to see the Judy Chicago Dinner Party which certainly didn't disappoint and an extra bonus was an amazing exhibition... More
