200 Eastern Parkway (Washington Ave.)
One of the oldest and largest museums in the U.S., the Brooklyn Museum is housed in a 560,000-square-foot beaux-arts building.
Its world-renowned permanent collections range from ancient Egyptian masterpieces to contemporary art, and represent a wide range of cultures. Only a 30-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan, with its own newly renovated subway station, the museum is part of a complex of 19th-century parks and gardens that also includes Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Prospect Park Zoo.
