Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum

One of Brooklyn's premiere cultural destinations, "Target First Saturdays" at the Brooklyn Museum attract thousands of visitors who come for a free night out, to see the gallery exhibits, hear speakers and live music, watch free films, and participate in hands-on art activities. Every First Saturday event is organized around a different — and always interesting — theme. It's a multi-event, family-friendly, six-hour extravaganza lasting from 5 P.M. until 11 P.M.

And, it's free. See the schedule of events for the next Target First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum.

You can make an evening of it; the museum's cafe serves delicious sandwiches, salads, and beverages, and visitors can buy both wine and beer at a cash bar. All galleries are open to the public.

Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Everything's Free, But Some Tickets Are Limited

Guests are advised to arrive early for certain programs, which, due to space limitations, require tickets. Tickets are free, but in order to obtain one, you're advised to get on line a half-hour early at the Visitor Center in the Rubin Lobby. (Museum members have priority and can obtain tickets on a same-day basis, at 2 P.M.)
