The Brooklyn Museum is fantastic! It is located right by the botanical gardens next to Prospect Park, making it easy to access by train. There is a stop on the 2/3 right out front! The museum itself is a nice size, small enough that you could see everything in one day but will definitely return to see special exhibits and browse through there storage and study area that is open to the public. The museum focuses on diversity and the local communities in Brooklyn by showing many artists of color as well as many women artists. It was quite refreshing to see them represented so abundantly. Also the exhibit "Dinner Party" is on permanent display here on the 4th floor. I was blown away by this one. What an important piece! I highly recommend visiting.
The help about art desk was a real great help for me! I asked whats an easy painting to draw and the guy told me go on the fifth floor and look for Marsden Hartley's piece titled Painting No. 48. All I have to say is that I got an A- on my sketch and that the help desk guy is the real MVP because I only know how to draw stick figures. So thanks help desk guy 💪👌
Had an enjoyable time here. Went to the museum as a last second idea but turned out to be the best choice for the evening. They had a free salsa concert in the lobby and many couples and friends were dancing. They sold cheap drinks and food to go along with the event. As for the museum itself it's less than $20 entry per adult but this night it was free to roam about. There are five floors and each offered interesting exhibits from around the world and time periods. The vast space between each set allows you to better focus on each piece before moving on to the next. Would recommend if you have at least an hour to kill.
