The visitors’ center at the former shipbuilding complex offers information on the facility and its connection to the surrounding neighborhoods. Plan an afternoon trip to check out its core exhibit, “Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present and Future,” which examines the space’s historical significance and future plans; "Designing the Future," featuring inventions and prototypes created by Brooklyn's engineering students; "Reflections on Rosie," about the rise of female factory workers during WWII and the yard's modern-day female-owned businesses; and "Wesley Fagan: A Life in Pictures," which presents the shots of the jazz musician and former Navy Yard photography director. Weekend tours of the yard itself are available by bus and bike ($24–$30).
