The Brooklyn Museum guide

A complete guide to the Brooklyn Museum including ticketing information, the best exhibits and things to do nearby

As the third-largest museum in NYC, The Brooklyn Museum rivals museums found in Manhattan (even The Metropolitan Museum) with its own amazing exhibits and galleries—which only stands to reason since most artists in NYC live and work in Brooklyn.

It has become one of NYC's premier art institutions that boast Egyptian, African and Oceanic artifacts as well as hotter contemporary art exhibits that rotate in and out. In fact, it has an entire wing devoted to the latest in feminist art, where you will find Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party, a huge permanent installation that pays tribute to famous women throughout history.
