TODAY, we are open from 11 am to 8 pm.


Welcome to our Careers area, where you'll find all open positions. We're committed to diversity and equal opportunity in our recruitment and hiring. Qualified candidates of all backgrounds are welcome to apply for the open positions listed below. Candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply. 

To apply, see the instructions for the position you're interested in. Because of the volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to respond to every application, but if you are a potential candidate, we will contact you. To be considered for a position you must be legally authorized to work in the United States.

In light of the latest executive order from the Office of the Mayor, all current and future Brooklyn Museum employees are required to present documentation that they have received the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. If, for personal reasons, you are not able to comply with this New York City requirement, we understand and respect your decision. We take the safety and well-being of our employees seriously and thank you for your understanding regarding this change to our hiring process.

Also, check out our ongoing opportunities for teens!
