First time here, extremely impressed. This is like a mash-up of the American Museum of Natural History and the Met. It's a large museum but very easy to navigate. All exhibits could be seen in one trip. Cafe food is good. Train station on the same block as the museum (2/3 train to Eastern Parkway), public parking (free) on the streets near the museum and parking on the premises for a fee. Close to the Brooklyn public library and botanical garden. Coming back for sure. Plus, it's donation based admission, so basically free!

What a cool museum! We had limited time to visit longer than an hour and immediately went to the special exhibitions: one was pinball themed and the other was about the history of the sneaker. We also zipped through the exhibit of items in storage, which was fascinating. It's easy to find but a little challenging to navigate. We had to go back downstairs from the 4th floor to the 1st to use the restroom.

Amazing museum. What a building. I love the retro americana stuff on the top floor. Old household items that being back memories of a very different America. Nice place to visit on a rainy day, or really any day.

It's not the Met, but that said I think it is a very well put together museum with a nice focus on modern works, especially those about the New York area. On my most recent visit the floors were: Ground: African. 2: Closed for renovations. 3: Ancient Egyptian (if you like this, you are definitely better off going to the met, kind of pointless but has some nice rooms on mummys). 4: Mostly a single artist. 5: An exhibit about Coney Island, which I surprisingly found to be very informative.

Beautiful museum. Very very rich with priceless items of art from before civilization to present time. It even has ancient Egyptian mummies. The museum is very well maintained and staff are friendly. A well deserved 5 stars.

This was my 2nd time to the museum, and I believe that it is one of the best museums I've been to. The admission is suggested, so if you pay what you can. So if you are struggling but still want a lil culture, bring your behind. I honestly don't think the cashier will care or judge you for it. The museum is undergoing some changes so a good portion of the museum was closed off. On this trip I actually walked right past Usher, so who knows what celebrities you might spot here!!

If you live in Brooklyn, you should definitely check out the Brooklyn Museum for an injection of art and culture. They often have classical music concerts. I love the outdoor space and the cafe's soups!

One of my favorite museums in the country. Just fyi I have a slight bias to this place as I've been coming here since I was a kid and it was one of my hidden sanctuaries. It's seconds from the subway, houses one of the largest African art collections in North America and hosts a kick ass monthly party sponsored by Target. The curation of special exhibits has been phenomenal over the past 7 years encompassing various sub and counter cultural phenomena. Let's get back to this monthly party. When it first started it was crazy no holds bar dance party spilling into the street over the years it has evolved to a more see and be seen party where all the cool kids go. On the plus side it is an all ages event that also allows people into the museum and special exhibits for free.
