Venture into one of the premier art institutions that this world has to offer. Breath-taking exhibits are always on display at the Brooklyn Museum.

Measuring around 560,000 square feet, the Brooklyn Museum is the second largest art museum in the United States. That means you'll have plenty of space to explore during your visit. The museum features a massive collection of over 1.5 million objects displayed throughout the five floors. The pieces featured in the Brooklyn Museum range from Ancient Egyptian masterpieces to contemporary paintings and sculptures that are influenced by many cultures around the world. You'll also have the opportunity to view works by some of the world's most celebrated artists such as Norman Rockwell, Mark Rothko, Georgia O'Keeffe and many more.


Throughout the year, brilliant and moving exhibits are displayed at the Brooklyn Museum and will cycle out after a given period of time. You can expect to see many different artistic elements drawn together and implemented into the many pieces. There is a wide variety of styles to view at the Brooklyn Museum from young and upcoming artists to household names. Each floor in the exhibit features different collections that take you on a journey to different cities and eras.

Late Thursdays
One of the great things about the Brooklyn Museum is the fact that they stay opened later on Thursdays. You can visit the museum until 10pm so it allows you to fit in a few more attractions early in the day and you won't be in such a rush knowing that you have some extra time to explore the museum.

First Saturdays
On the first Saturday of each month, the museum holds a free party. Visitors are able to roam the museum and view the galleries while music is provided by some of the best DJ's and performers in the city.
