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

Masks still required in accordance with state and local guidelines.

For over twenty-one years, we've hosted First Saturdays—monthly evenings of free programming welcoming visitors from central Brooklyn and beyond—at the Brooklyn Museum. While we won't be hosting indoor public programs during summer 2021, we're continuing our commitment to bringing engaging arts and culture to you with First Saturday Lite, a low-key outdoor afternoon in the spirit of our beloved flagship program. Meet us on the plaza on Eastern Parkway at 2–6 pm on May 1, June 5, and August 7, 2021, for live music and DJ sets, local vendors, and art-making in celebration of our communities.
