  • I saw the city reliquary in a book about little-known sights in New York. It is probably more interesting for visitors than natives. My wife and I spent 30 minutes there. If we were spending the day i...  more »

  • discovered by chance on the net looking for places that showed the real New York. A piece of proud history made by memorabilia and souvenirs--small pieces of history of a New York that no longer exists. Forget the glitter of Manhattan ... here in North Williamsburg there's real people and proud ... and this little Museum is a worthy representative.

  • Great little place for nostalgia and amazing artfacts of New York life. Make sure to tale the time to lusten to all the phones and headsets!
  • Great place with a lot of interesting artifacts. Super friendly staff !
  • Quirky, ridiculous, and densely packed within a small space. Little Egypt is the highlight.
  • A small quaint museum, but really needs to put some explanation on the random collection of 1930s-'60s antiques, as well as reducing the admission from $5 to donation or $1. Took us about 10 minutes to examine all the exhibits, one of which didn't work and the others which we had difficulty with due to the drunk people from the neighbouring bar getting in the way as they were lining up for the museum toilet. Museum has potential but guests will continue to be frustrated in it's current state
  • Great way to spend five dollars in Brooklyn! The place is small, but crammed with interesting artifacts. Wonderfully weird!

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
