New Feature!



In this elegant Beaux Arts building in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn's biggest museum (and New York's second-largest) has ample exhibition space for a permanent collection that includes Egyptian antiquities, African and Asian art, American decorative pieces and contemporary photography and performance art. The museum also screens films, hosts readings and has a popular program for schools in the area. Want to follow up a few hours of learning with an afternoon outside? You're in luck. Museum passes also include same-day admission to the adjacent Brooklyn Botanic Garden, which spans 52 acres and includes 200 cherry trees, a Japanese koi pond and the Cranfeld Rose Garden. 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY. 718-368-5000
