This Museum is outside of Manhattan, although easily reachable by Subway. Like a lot of the museums, it has free entry on sundays,so it didn't feel like we were going to be wasting money dragging recalcitrant kids around yet another art collection. There were dramatic exhibitions by mariko mori while we were there, some of which now may be permanent, and all of which had the power to interest even our 8,10 and 12 yr olds. much of her film work was being played including a wacky 3d movie which you sit on the floor to watch.The repetitive images and sounds are an eclectic mix of the ancient, the present and the futuristic. The museum is well worth a visit (check for special exhibits) and could be combined with a saunter around the reputedly beautiful Brooklyn Botanical Gardens which are next door or a walk around or picnic in Prospect Park, which is a 10/15 minnute walk away. The gift shop is a good one, and I've heard that the cafe is also worth a visit.
