We really enjoyed the Brooklyn museum's Egyptian collection. Although not as large as the Met's, Brooklyn's collection is of high quality and had excellent annotation throughout the exhibits. It was definitely worth a trip from Manhattan to see. The rest of the museum is a...More

Comprehensive and memory evoking. An artist ahead of his time and dedicated to setting the conversation trend. A beautiful man who commanded excellence without being a difficult superstar.

Friends and I went to see the Bowie exhibit, it was very nice. It was a little crowded, but that the usual. They give a set of headphones hooked up to a box, and you hear David Bowie’s music it changes for the different areas....More

We had a great morning at the Botanic Gardens and a couple of hours in the museum. Not very busy and pay what you wish entry fee. The Assyrian palace exhibits were amazing and the Egyptian rooms were quite and spaciously laid out. Much better...More

Easy to get to Museum via subway from Grand Central. Beautiful architectural sight, obviously beautifully restored interior. So bright inside, makes everything easy to see. I went to see the Bowie exhibition which was exceptional to say the least! Very pleasant staff too!

I specifically came for the Radical Women’s exhibit, which was phenomenal. There was two huge rooms filled with amazing Latin American women artists. I also loved how the Dinner Party was displayed. A few things I didn’t love about the museum. There was a flow...More

It is an excelent review of Bowie's trajectory, with lots of texts, lirics and videos, and also the clothes he were in so many of his magnificent tours. I spent four hours in there, but could have been two times as much. Don't miss it...More

I was surprised at how beautiful this museum is. Being a native New Yorker, I had never been to the Brooklyn Museum and it has been my loss. They did an excellent job curating the David Bowie exhibition except for the lack of air conditioning...More

It really depends how interested you are in David Bowie. There is a lot to read and see. I would plan for no less than 1 hour but I know some who spent 3 hours at the exhibit. I hope this helps.
