Our Take

Come to the Brooklyn Museum for one of its always top-notch special exhibitions but stay for its permanent Egyptian collection, which rivals that of other museums in the city (or even those in actual Egypt). General admission is suggested so you can pay what you wish, and don’t miss the replica Statue of Liberty standing in the museum’s parking lot.

“Second largest art museum in NYC”

The Brooklyn Museum, located at 200 Eastern Parkway, in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, is the second-largest art museum in New York City, and one of the largest in the United States. Arnold L. Lehman is the museum's Director. One of the premier art institutions in the world, its permanent collection includes objects ranging from ancient Egyptian masterpieces to contemporary art, as well as the art of many other cultures. Housed in a 560,000 square foot (52,000 m²), Beaux-Arts building, approximately 500,000 patrons visit the museum each year. Located in Central Brooklyn, the museum is a half-hour from midtown Manhattan and about fifteen minutes from downtown Brooklyn. It is served by the Eastern Parkway- Brooklyn Museum subway station on the IRT Eastern Parkway Line and the nearby Botanic Garden station of the Franklin Avenue Shuttle.

Explore cultures and societies from around the world at the Brooklyn Museum. Set along Prospect Park, this Brooklyn institution provides artistic treasures and significant artifacts for all to enjoy.

With a huge collection of Egyptian art, roam the rooms and find something that inspires and interests you. This museum is constantly rotating main exhibits, so check online to see if anything checks your boxes. While the Brooklyn Museum stands with some of the greatest museums in New York City, this museum has significantly less crowds, so you’ll feel free to stroll the halls and take your time enjoying the exhibits.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Brooklyn!
