  • If you don't know what to do and you have a cold and rainy weather that will allow you to warm up, otherwise do not go to Brooklyn just for the Museum. The exhibition of rodin is good for the rest we have not found this extraordinary and more with children

  • What a wonderful museum! T two of us went through the whole place and every part of it was a delight. The temporary exhibits were extremely creative and captivating. I especially enjoyed an exhibit about the growth of Mecca. The permanent collection is full of wonderful surprises. We had no problem parking either, which surprised me.
  • Beautiful and imposing place and not much frequented by the local population is worth checking the details and magnitude of the building. The content it offers is of great value and beauty. A real old art. Beautiful historical heritage. With accessible entrance for wheelchairs and bathroom and also has own parking.
  • Went to see the David Bowie special exhibition and it was an amazing tribute to a one on a million artist! The wide range of fashion items that he wore including male and female clothing made this a must visit exhibit even if you don't care for his music. For people like me who adore the music this was an exquisite experience that brought me much closer to the real David Bowie, the person and not just the rock icon.
  • Fascinating exhibits spanning the ages. Impressive space with a nice layout. Meandering enough to facilitate leisurely self guided tours but not so complex and cavernous that you get hopelessly lost. Very enjoyable with a quaint, unfussy gift shop bathed in natural light.
  • Was a pretty neat museum but fairly small. Very modern and can easily be done in 2-3 hours on a normal day. However if you go on the first Friday of the month it is entirely free at night and is packed to the point you can barely move around and I wouldn't recommend it. It's an event sponsored by Target but is neat in the fact there's a DJ and a party atmosphere in the front. Like all city museums if you can't afford full price you can pay what up want.
