More than 1.5 million works of art are on display at Brooklyn Museum. From ancient Egyptian sarcophagi to contemporary art, the museum displays a vast range of cultures from around the world. Through a mixture of permanent exhibits and special collections, displays rotate frequently. The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is dedicated to preserving the history of the feminist movement through feminist art. A massive piece by Judy Chicago, The Dinner Party, is on display here. You can take a variety of guided tours, included in the price of admission, on a variety of themes. You can pick up audio guides for select exhibits.

Brooklyn Museum Reviews
While the museum is not huge, it will definitely keep you interested for a few hours. And being off the beaten track - it doesn't get too busy. more »
It was a nice museum a bunch of sections that are under construction or being re-done but it still was a nice afternoon and a good escape from the heat more »
I came from the city on the subway, which leaves you right off at the museum. It was not hard at all. The museum took all day. There is a lot to look at. There was an exhibit on Pierre Cardin, which costs a few dollars extra. Which was huge. And, right now they are changing exhibits. So, one floor was closed. But, still so much stuff. They sell food, if you want to take a break. Also, tables and chairs outside. Very nice. Bring comfortable shoes.Enjoy!
What's not to love, eh!? Amazing exhibitions (for instance the David Bowie) and what could be better than that Target First Saturdays!?! I mean, really, we have had blast after blast at this joint Saturday after Saturday for years! In fact, the night that I got the call from the woman who was to be--still is--my wife called me while I was partying down at First Night---so, you gotta know I've got some gold standard associations to this place!!!!
