This museum is a gem. Off the Manhattan charts. Centrally located and easy to get to. It's withing steps of the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and trendy Park Slope

There were other scheduled activities too, but the...More

Visited here for the first time this past September. Even before you step in, it's such an impressive place. Very cool architecture and I love the fountains in the front. Egyptian exhibit was very nifty, as was the one that covers colonial design and the...More
