Starting September 3, the Brooklyn Museum will be free for visitors under 20, while the suggested general admission fees for adults will go up to $16 (previously $12), and $10 (previously $8) for adults 62+ and students with valid ID.
In a statement released by the museum, Arnold L. Lehman, the Shelby White and Leon Levy Director of the Brooklyn Museum, explained how the move dovetails with the museum’s mission:
I am delighted that we are able to expand our access to younger visitors by increasing free admission for those ages nineteen and under. This younger audience segment represents the future of all museums, and we must do everything possible to make it easier for them to visit. At the same time, the economic reality of inflation makes necessary this modest increase in our suggested admission fees for other audience segments.
