We were very impressed with the quality of the exhibitions. The current “Blue” exhibit and the permanent comprehensive Egyptian exhibits are must sees. There is even a Chihuly piece and Tiffany window.

We enjoyed walking around for a few hours. The Egyptian section and the mummy were the biggest hit. Also close to Prospect Park zoo and Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

Love this museum. It has something for everyone; classic art like impressionists as well as modern art and sculpture. Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party is permanently displayed. There are new exhibits being planned-to David Bowie for example. In addition, there is a very interesting retrospective...More
