So you’ve enjoyed yourself at the Brooklyn Museum but are not quite ready to go back to your hotel? Fortunately, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is right around the corner from the Brooklyn Museum. You can purchase a Brooklyn Art and Garden ticket which will give you same day access to the Garden as well as the Museum. The suggested contribution is $20 for adults, $11 for students with ID, Seniors $11, children under 12 are FREE. Speaking of FREE- if you plan on visiting the Botanical Garden on Tuesday there is no cover but do note that the Brooklyn Museum is closed on Mon and Tue.
