New York City and its boroughs are known for their fantastic museums and historical attractions. However, smaller or lesser-known museums often take a backseat to the Met, the Guggenheim, or the Museum of Natural History. If you’ve seen the quintessential NYC museums and want something new, consider getting a car rental from Empire Rent a Car and checking out the Brooklyn Museum. A hub of art, culture, and diversity, the Brooklyn Museum celebrates what New York is all about. Here you can find art pieces from centuries past and present. The Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection currently has almost 5,000 pieces available for public viewing. While this number can change due to rotating art in and out of viewing in order to preserve the pieces, museum’s permanent collection is quite extensive, spanning time and continents. The Brooklyn Museum also has special rotating exhibits, featuring different artists and exhibits. You can check out the Brooklyn Museum’s Exhibitions page to see what’s current, what’s on the way, and past special collections. Currently, you can see “Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe,” “Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond,” as well as “Judy Chicago’s Feminist Pedagogy and Alternative Spaces.” Celebrate the arts and history of Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn Museum. The museum is an easy drive in your car rental from almost anywhere in NYC. Brooklyn Museum admission prices vary. Ages 19 and younger and members are free. Students (with a valid ID) over age 19 and Seniors (age 62 and older) cost $10 to get in. All other admission fees are $16 a person.
