Brooklyn Museum reviews
The "Revelation" exhibit linking Andy Warhol's religious faith (Ukrainian rite Catholic), his art, his gayness, and his recovery from gunshots was well-curated and definitely worth the rip.

We went on a Thursday afternoon and it was the perfect time to go! There was barely anybody there so it felt like we had the museum to ourselves. They have a cafe and restaurant, we went to the cafe and had a wrap which was good. We wanted a sandwich but some of the lettuce looked a little sketchy. Overall the museum was very clean, well organized, and fairly easy to navigate. We should have grabbed a map, I didn’t see any anywhere.. however the staff was very helpful and answered any questions we had. They had some incredible oil paintings here, a plethora of Buddha statues and on the 5th floor they have a room where they keep past items in storage which is pretty cool. We spent about 2 1/2 hours here and saw almost all of the exhibits. (We didn’t pay for the other limited exhibits) They have a couple interactive pieces which were interesting but I kind of wish they had more! The one where we could write in the books was our favorite. I knocked a star down because with the location and the way it’s presented I wished they had a bit more exhibits and art pieces directed towards the youth or maybe more engaging information that captures our attention? The way info is presented is just very blunt.
