I had come to see the Studio 54 exhibition which I wanted to see for a second time and it had closed in early November. I was really bummed since the exhibition had been closed for four months because of the COVID closures of the museums in NYC. It was a great exhibition that I had not fully seen. I just wondered around the museum and looked over the permanent exhibitions in the museum. Don't miss the American and the Egyptian Galleries that have gone through a second renovation. The Egyptian Galleries here are not as overwhelming as the ones at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You can take time to see the whole exhibition in one afternoon. The museum has timed tickets so the museum was really quiet.

The Brooklyn Museum finally reopened after almost six months and I finally got to see the "Studio 54" exhibition that was supposed to open before the COVID-19 pandemic. It was really interesting as they covered the music and clothing of the time in the late 70's and how the City and its problems brought about the Disco era. I think people just needed to escape from it all. They showed the fashions, the DJ Mixes, pictures of all the people that used to go there and all the private parties that were held there down to the invitations and videos of the events. It was a very detailed exhibition. Plan to spend about three hours at it. Only two floors are currently opened at the museum both One and Five for the private exhibitions. The rest of the museum is still shut for the time.

I’m not one for art museums, and this one was mediocre. I guess I was expecting something more like the metropolitan museum of art or the museum of modern art, but it was quite different. It was under construction and didn’t have too many exhibits. I wanted to spend the whole day or at least a few hours at the museum, but I had seen everything in around 2 hours. I spent more time on the subway than I did at the museum! I will not visit again, but you may like it if you’re into art, just know what to expect.

This is a beautifully appointed museum. So well done. Close to trains and plenty of restaurants nearby. When I was there, they had a fashion display that was fantastic! Also photo display that was also amazing and well done.
