    Visit: Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238-6099

    Brooklyn Museum is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States. Its roots extend back to 1823 and the founding of the brooklyn Apprentices' Library to educate young tradesmen (Walt Whitman would later become one of its librarians).

    The Brooklyn Museum was conceived as the focal point of a planned cultural, recreational, and educational district for the burgeoning city of Brooklyn. Although the scope of that envisioned complex of parks, gardens, and buildings changed after the once-independent Brooklyn was absorbed into New York City in 1898, many features of the plan were eventually realized and are reflected in what can be seen today.

    In recent years, the Museum has focused on redesigning its galleries and reinstalling its major collections to make them more accessible to the public. Flowing spaces, vivid wall colors, dramatic graphic elements, and multimedia components feature in many of these reconfigured galleries.

    The collections of American painting and sculpture, with significant additions from Spanish colonial and Native American art, were reorganized in 2001 to form the long-term installation “American Identities: A New Look” within completely reconceived gallery spaces.

    With a mission to create inspiring encounters with art that expand the ways we see ourselves, the world and its possibilities, visiting this museum is an educational and cultural experience not to be missed!

    This local treasure, very much updated both architecturally and exhibit-wise, is almost always a good bet. This particular exhibit was an extensive look at works on paper, from original woodcuts by Durer to Picasso and beyond. Wide span of techniques, e.g. lithographs, and good

    We took the subway from Union Square to get to Brooklyn---with the help of a friend, we eventually made it, and the museum is right outside the subway stop. It's a big place, and on Sunday we visited, you could pay what you wanted. My wife paid full price ($16), and since I'm

    They had a big YO sign outside and they play hip-hop in the foyer, which always sets a good mood. I knew I was in for a doozy. It was a Sunday, and not super crowded. Although not a huge museum, the quality of the exhibits were on point. Saw an exhibit on Pierre Cardin: Future

    This is a great museum. I love to go on the first Saturday of the month. It is free after 5 pm and has live music, activities and all exhibits are open to the public. It is a nice evening of food, drinks, and music that is kid-friendly. A must visit coming to NYC,
