The Brooklyn Museum, a 560,000 square-foot Beaux-Arts building, is a piece of art itself. It’s located in central Brooklyn right next to Prospect Park and the Botanic Garden. With origins dating back to the early 19th Century, the Brooklyn Museum is one of the oldest and the largest museums in our nation.Whether your interest is paintings, ancient masks, sculptures, or even Feminist Art, this valuable museum features pieces from across the world—and across the centuries. Below are just a few of the permanent collections you can view:
  • Egyptian Art: See a Predynastic knife dating between 3300 and 3100 BCE. Marvel at the head from a female sphinx and see old hieroglyphics.
  • Contemporary Art: Sculptures, paintings, photographs, and other mediums are on display from some of the most famous contemporary artists.
  • Arts of Africa: View grave markers, pendants, ceremonial staffs, awe-inspiring statues, and other phenomenal art from Africa.

This month you can interact with, “Mickalene Thomas: Origin of the Universe,” “GO: A community-curated open studio project,” “Wish Tree,” and many others.
