Wear comfortable shoes! Lots of walking. Great museum with suggested donations available for admission. Really enjoyed the American art pieces and the mummified animals of ancient Egypt. They have a cafe and a nice gift shop. Weekdays are obviously less crowded but filled with school...More

Japanese, Chinese and Korean art and pottery, furniture collections, Egyptian mummies and art, sculpture, portraits, American and Impressionist art, jewelry etc. It is hard to describe and capture the vast displays in this beautiful and airy musuem.

We had only two hours to visit this museum and probably didn't do it justice but we were very impressed nonetheless. We found the American Art, the Mummy Chamber and Ancient Egyptian Art all beautifully displayed and wonderful to see. The Visible Storage area is...More

This museum is a gem. Off the Manhattan charts. Centrally located and easy to get to. It's withing steps of the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and trendy Park Slope

I have never been disappointed here. There’s enough in the permanent collection to make a visit worthwhile, but their temporary exhibitions tend to be the draw. Visiting Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party at least once should be a requirement for all. The Elizabeth Sackler Center...More
