  • Loved the Judy Chicago installation- The Dinner. Also enjoyed the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. Maybe not one of the must-see museums of NYC but worth a visit if you're in Brooklyn.  more »

  • We had a rainy day during our stay in Brooklyn so we headed to the museum. It was 20$ per person to include the Georgia o,Keefe exhibit as well as the resident installations. The collections and exhibits were all so different and interesting. I loved learning about o,Keefe as a feminist icon. The black radical women exhibit was beautiful as well. I highly recommend a visit.
  • We had a good time and presentation. The Pratt family's- gifts were well represented. I would like to return for another visit. There was so much more to see. Thank you.
  • top notch Egyptian rooms and overall a very well put together museum with varied styles and areas of the permanent collection. the Georgia O'Keefe exhibition was quite nice. it opened my eyes to entire new perspective of her as a individual and as an artist
  • A gem in the area. I think it's probably overlooked because the Met draws most of the attention. Very nice pieces. Couple with the adjacent Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and your day is set.
  • We absolutely love the Brooklyn Museum. It has such a surprisingly huge and varied collection, and is much less crowded and more laid back than the Manhattan museums. The rotating exhibitions are a good thing to keep your eye on as they frequently have great stuff come through. Also, the first Saturday of every month is a great event with music, drinks, talks, film screenings, and more. Not to mention, the building itself is pretty impressive!
