    Interesting interactive exhibits. Don't miss the Prospect Park History section in the basement. Great, diverse artist's market on Saturday.

    The building is a gem of a gem of a street. The museum is small in size, which is a good thing because it doesn't overwhelm. The exhbit that I saw about slavery in Brooklyn was creatively put together. The displays and commentary were excellent. I have a bone to pick about the Library upstairs. While the space is comfortable, it doesn't have enough outlets for computers. My experience is that the librarians don't answer their emails in a timely fashion, if indeed they answer them. And their archival collections have been unavailable for quite some time. So researchers--be warned!!!

    This is a beautiful setting in a beautiful neighborhood. The exhibits are well done, but they aren't so extensive or so numerous that you feel overwhelmed — you can feel like you get something out of it even in a short visit. And don’t miss the library on the second level. You can view it from just inside the doors, or if you want to see it more up close and peruse some of its holdings, you can sign in at the library’s front desk.

    I've always liked this place. Part archive, part lecture hall, part museum, with just a touch of Hogwarts about it. A great place to learn the history of Brooklyn, and the surrounding city, in an environment that's a bit less distant than a pure museum.

    Love this place. Great lectures. Love all their exhibits as well. Recommend them highly.
