Brooklyn Museum


See Website

This beautiful Beaux-Arts style museum is the city's second largest, with a staggering 1.8 million works in their collection. There are exhibits from all over the world (including amazing Egyptian artifacts), but the emphasis is on American art and artists. Blue-chip names featured at the museum include Georgia O'Keefe, Mark Rothko, Norman Rockwell and Edward Hopper. Architecture buffs should check out the Memorial Cculpture Garden, which features beautiful salvaged pieces of demolished New York City buildings. On the first Saturday of every month, the museum hosts one of Brooklyn's coolest parties, Target First Saturday, with djs, musicians and free entertainment. Check the museum website for the traveling exhibitions, which have included Jean-Paul Gaultier, Ai Wei Wei and El Anatsui in the past.
