Fodor's Review

Four centuries' worth of art and artifacts bring Brooklyn's story to life at this marvelous space. Housed in an 1881 Queen Anne–style National Historic Landmark building—one of the neighborhood's gems—the society surveys the borough's changing identity through permanent exhibits that include interactive displays, landscape paintings, photographs of the area, portraits of prominent Brooklynites, and fascinating memorabilia. Check the website for details about the stellar lineup of temporary exhibitions.
