With a mission to bridge the artistic heritage of world cultures, this 560,000-square-foot museum built in grand Beaux-Arts style houses a large, diverse collection of 1.5 million works that encompasses the world and stretches from antiquity to today, with special attention to ancient Egypt. Other highlights include works by Edward Hopper, Mark Rothko, Norman Rockwell, John Singer Sargent, and Georgia O’Keeffe. Adjacent to the south entrance, the Frieda Schiff Warburg Memorial Sculpture Garden displays salvaged architectural pieces from around the city. Free daily tours led by trained volunteers take place throughout the week as do film screenings, panel discussions, concerts, and lectures.

The first Saturday evening of every month (except September), the Brooklyn Museum opens its doors free of charge.
