Tips from locals
Unique location next to the Botanical gardens, Prospect park, and the Brooklyn library. All these interesting places are walking distance from this location.
Great art museum! Beaux Arts landmark famed for ancient & modern art collections & world-class temporary exhibitions.
This is one of my favorite museums in New York. Don’t forget to check out Prospect Park after you visit the museum.
One of the greatest museums in NYC but flies under the radar. Vast and wide ranging collection. Right next to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park Farmers’s Market on Saturday’s. Worth a visit.
This is a 20 minute walk with a wide range of exhibits. If you don't feel like facing the crowds at the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan, it's got a nice selection.
It’s Brooklyn and you feel it. The First Friday of every month is very and fun. Close to Prospect Park.
