So I went to the Brooklyn Museum the other day and was pleasantly surprised with all that I saw! I don’t know why that I thought the museum wasn’t going to be good just because it wasn’t in Manhattan. The art work was fantastic (I had to go for a paper) and some of the stuff was CRAZY OLD. I’m talking 5,000/6,000 year old statues and stuff! Their Egyptian art section was fantastically amazing. They LITERALLY HAD MUMMIES. DEAD MUMMIES WRAPPED IN MUMMY PAPER. They had a mummified cat too! I couldn’t believe it. Being next to dead people always freaks me out lol.
