Brooklyn Museum

200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York, 11238

The Basics

The Brooklyn Museum offers a cultural experience that reflects the diversity and eclectic tastes of borough residents, from contemporary works and decorative arts to multimedia installations. As you enter the light-filled first floor, ask about free daily tours. Don't miss the Steinberg Family Sculpture Garden, which hosts a range of architectural sculpture that would historically adorn New York's buildings.

Consider purchasing general admission tickets before you arrive to get the most out of your visit. Multiattraction passes that include museum admission are also an option. Advance purchase may include museum gift shop discounts and access to special collections and the permanent collection. Museum highlights include the galleries hosting pre-Columbian works, American Indian art, and the WPA-funded American murals—a significant element of American art history.

First time going to the Museum & I enjoyed myself. The paintings were an absolute pleasure to get lost in. The texture of the paint strokes on the canvas were just amazing & great conversation pieces.

When to Get There

The Brooklyn Museum is a perfect year-round (and foul-weather) destination, since most of the top attractions and galleries are indoors. Weekdays are the best for avoiding crowds, though the museum is closed on Monday and Tuesday. For free admission, visit on the first Saturday of the month, but be prepared for an elbow-to-elbow art experience.
