    Helpful, professional staff. Available is a cafe and parking for a fee which is also accessible to Brooklyn Botanical Garden (next door). Many interesting exhibits including a focus on women artists. This museum is very close to public transportation--take the 2 or 3 train to the Eastern Pkwy/Brooklyn Museum stop.

    The Brooklyn Museum is a much more intimate experience than the Metropolitan, not that I'm criticizing the Met, which is a must see. But the Brooklyn Museum is less intimidating and up close. The best part were the climate controlled rooms where they keep the items not currently on display. Instead of hiding everything in an Indiana Jones warehouse, there are glass cases filled with thousands of items, all numbered and catalogued, and flat file drawers containing small items like cameos, coins, medals, photos, artwork, etc. I went the Brooklyn Museum for the Bowie exhibit, but while waiting for it to start I saw so much to recommend that I'm going back first chance I get. Thanks, Brooklyn!

    It's a suggested price, so you can donate $1 to get inside! The best deal you'll get for a dollar is here! I liked the old homes on the fourth floor. It's a nice museum! It's also next to the Brooklyn botanic garden, and not far from prospect Park zoo!

    Went to see the "David Bowie Is" exhibit... Truly wonderful! In-depth look at the man and his music, his influence, and his amazing style! I liked that visitors could go at their own pace, and go back to take in their favorite parts once again. The rest of the museum will warrant a second, or third, or etc. visit, for sure! Staff was courteous and helpful. Coat/bag check was very efficient, and was able to provide a complementary wheelchair for us to use, as my husband had a recent ankle injury. I have back pain from a drunk driver years ago, so I appreciated the lightweight folding stools that were available to use in the museum, as seating was not available in the exhibit. I also liked the online video information that was easily accessed, and made our first visit very enjoyable and less stressful, as we were prepared for our trip.

    Fantastic! Bowie is was excellent and not crowded to being a burden while sold out. Very big and spent the whole day here. Right next to botanical gardens and very easy to get to. Pretty part of town. Check out the Promenade it's just a couple stops away to get a great view of the skyline.
