Fodor's Expert Review Brooklyn Historical Society

Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn Library/Archive Fodor's Choice
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, the society surveys the borough's changing identity through interactive exhibitions, landscape paintings, photographs, portraits of Brooklynites, and fascinating memorabilia. The gift shop features an eclectic assortment of Brooklyn-themed books and tchotchkes. Stop by the society's second location in DUMBO's Empire Stores (55 Water Street) for special exhibits like the family-friendly "Waterfront."
