Fodor's Expert Review Brooklyn Museum

Prospect Heights Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice
First-time visitors may well gasp at the vastness of New York’s second-largest museum (after Manhattan’s Metropolitan Museum of Art) and one of the largest in America at 560,000 square feet of exhibition space. The colossal Beaux Arts structure houses one of the best collections of Egyptian art in the world and impressive collections of African, pre-Columbian, and Native American art. It's also worth seeking out the museum's works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, George Bellows, Thomas Eakins, and Milton Avery. The museum is also well known for very contemporary, cutting-edge special exhibits. The monthly (except for September) First Saturday free-entry night is a neighborhood party of art, music, and dancing, with food vendors and several cash bars.
