Tomorrow is your last chance to visit the Brooklyn Historical Society, as the Brooklyn Heights institution will be closed from August 18 to September 10. The landmarked building, an 1881 Queen Anne–style structure, is temporarily shutting down so that the final touches on its ongoing renovation—which began in spring 2012—can be completed.


The refurbished interior, which you'll be able to visit starting September 11, will feature expanded retail, exhibition and classroom space; a new reception desk and lobby gallery; and an updated, state-of-the-art event space. Don't worry—the grand terra-cotta entrance of the historical building will still serve as the main entrance. For more information on the renovations, head over to the BHS website.
