One of Kings County’s preeminent cultural attractions, the 560,000-square-foot Brooklyn Museum made history as the first American museum to exhibit African objects as artwork. In addition to the more than 4,000 items in the Egyptian holdings, museumgoers can scope pieces by masters such as Cézanne, Monet and Degas, plus an entire center devoted to feminist art. (The venue is the permanent home of Judy Chicago’s massive installation The Dinner Party.) Beyond its physical acquisitions, the spot draws crowds with its BrooklyNites Jazz music series and the perennially popular free Target First Saturdays. And don't miss the Brooklyn Museum Shop, which offers handmade wares from local designers and artisans.
