Brooklyn Historical Society

Set in an elegant residential area that was once an agricultural backwater, this elegant Queen Anne-style building was opened in 1881 as home to the museum founded 18 years earlier. It’s the place to learn all there is to know about possibly the most interesting of New York’s five boroughs.

As well as a library with stained glass windows, elegant columns and over 33,000 books, the collection holds maps and atlases, artifacts, paintings, photographs, films and oral histories.

A regular program of exhibitions brings the significance of Brooklyn and its eclectic past to life. The Society now has a second location in the exciting waterfront area, DUMBO.
