Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Just a short subway ride from Manhattan brings you to one of the world's oldest and largest museums: the Brooklyn Museum. Follow up your visit with a stroll through the awe-inspiring 52-acre botanical garden. The stunning Beaux Arts building alone is worth the trip!

Housed in a 560,000 square-foot building, the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum represents virtually all the world’s cultures, ranging from the ancient to the contemporary. The museum prides itself on its long tradition of acquiring both Western and non-Western art. Its collections contain thousands of pieces, including African Art, Arts of the Islamic World, Decorative Arts, European Art, Egyptian, Classical & Ancient Near Eastern Art, Arts of the Pacific Islands, Arts of the Americas, Asian Art, Photography, and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Take a quick hop over to Brooklyn and visit the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden on your trip to NYC. This ticket gives you access to both attractions, which are part of central Brooklyn’s vast complex of venues and gardens from the 19th century. All is accessible via a newly renovated subway station.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Brooklyn is surprisingly green, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a great place to spend a day breathing in the fresh air. The garden is located right next to the Brooklyn Museum, making for a full day’s worth of activities. Fifty two acres of world-famous botanical gems will leave you in awe, as you walk around the soothing Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, and the Cherry Esplanade, with its stunning blooms. The reflective nature of water is a central theme in this garden, as you will notice when looking at the Lily Pool Terrace, which is home to almost one hundred different kinds of water lilies.

Also featured at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the Steinhardt Conservatory, with its collection of exotic plants, and the C.V. Star Bonsai Museum. Even if the weather is a bit chilly, the garden is worth a trip, as it contains plants and exhibits that thrive in all climates and seasons.

Comments about Smart Destinations Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden:

The Brooklyn Museum is one of my favorite museum. part of it is just by comparison to the scene over in Manhattan -- the Brooklyn Museum is much less crowded and feels a lot more relaxing. But on its own the Museum is rightly a destination -- its got an impresive array and variety of displays in a grand setting. Definitely a great place to visit and its fun to eat in the surrounding area.
