Brooklyn Museum Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Brooklyn Museum is an art museum located in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. At 560,000 square feet (52,000 m2), the museum is New York City's third largest in physical size and holds an art collection with roughly 1.5 million works.
Located near the Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Flatbush, and Park Slope neighborhoods of Brooklyn and founded in 1895, the Beaux-Arts building, designed by McKim, Mead and White, was planned to be the largest art museum in the world. The museum initially struggled to maintain its building and collection, only to be revitalized in the late 20th century, thanks to major renovations. Significant areas of the collection include antiquities, specifically their collection of Egyptian antiquities spanning over 3,000 years. European, African, Oceanic, and Japanese art make for notable antiquities collections as well. American art is heavily represented, starting at the Colonial period. Artists represented in the collection include Mark Rothko, Edward Hopper, Norman Rockwell, Winslow Homer, Edgar Degas, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Max Weber. The museum also has a "Memorial Sculpture Garden" which features salvaged architectural elements from throughout New York City.
One angry customer shared this in a review "I was looking so forward to seeing the David Bowie Is exhibit in the Brooklyn Museum, and I was let down tremendously. Not by what the exhibit offered, which was great if only I could've seen it all. But there was seriously way too many people in the exhibit to actually get to look at everything and enjoy it. It was kind of insane the amount of people squeezed in, I kept getting bumped in to, and there were literally hoards of people gathered around different parts making it hard and annoying to try and read things. The exhibit its self was awesome. I just wish i wasn't so aggravated when I was there, all of the people definitely made me shorten my stay. I would probably recommend going during the first time slot, or maybe on a week day."
Roxanne Baumgart says"Dont buy! They stole my money! I cant use the pass in Vegas it only good for less than half of the attractions. They absolutely refuse to refund. Disgusting company."
Avril says"Bought go city passes in August 2019 for a 25 year anniversary trip to Las Vegas in April 2020. Due to pandemic this trip was cancelled. I’ve emailed company several times for a refund which gas been refused. £700 worth. Offer to extend for 2 years which gives me to August next year with no chance of travel to USA within this time. Absolutely disgusted that they won’t even try to understand that it’s no ones fault with a global pandemic & that to refund customers would go a long way to actually keeping customers. ??"
Karen Palonis says"Do not buy these passes! We bought 6 passes for Oahu in February but our trip was cancelled in April due to COVID-19. This company refuses to refund our money. They will not help us at all. They will extend the expiration date but this trip wont be rescheduled so that doesn't help. The refuse to work with us. Every other company involved in our trip gave us refunds EXCEPT this company!"
DH_2020 says"Don’t use this company. Due to COVID our trip to Vegas was cancelled and we are being denied any sort of refund for 3 months now, justifying this by saying “bills and salaries need to be paid” with my stolen money which is absolutely disgusting. We have been told this will be followed up but you’re just sent around in circles being told the exact same thing. Again, a disgusting unethical company which steals your money and I will never in my life use you again due to this experience."
