The Brooklyn Museum, housed in a 560,000-square-foot, Beaux-Arts building, is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the country. Its world-renowned permanent collections range from ancient Egyptian masterpieces to contemporary art, and represent a wide range of cultures. Only a 30-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan, with its own newly renovated subway station, the Museum is part of a complex of nineteenth-century parks and gardens that also includes Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the Prospect Park Zoo.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards of curatorial excellence—from great art and original shows to beautiful installations and canon-expanding scholarship. We strive to create and present inspirational and transformative engagement with our collections, exhibitions, programming, and educational offerings, welcoming all visitors with respect and a true sense of hospitality.
We seek to create a work environment that values hard work, professionalism, accountability, creativity, and achievement. We are committed to creating a community of talented, passionate people who are inspired to make the Museum an important hub of community activity and a great global destination, grow their professional skills, and work collaboratively with colleagues they admire and respect.
