Group Visits

Share the experience of visiting Brooklyn Historical Society together!

Due to limitations in our staff and facility size, unscheduled groups of ten or more may not be accommodated at the time of their arrival. When an unscheduled group arrives, our Visitor Services staff will advise whether we have the capacity to accommodate the group at that time. If not, we are happy to help arrange for your return at a later hour or a different date.

In order to schedule staff and ensure that our galleries are not overcrowded, we ask that all groups arrange for their visits in advance by emailing [email protected]g or calling 718-222-4111 ext. 288. Self-guided groups are scheduled during the museum’s public hours.

We are happy to offer groups of 10 or more a discounted rate on our suggested admission fee:

  • $50 for 10 to 30 people
  • $100 for 31 to 80 people

For a more enriching experience, we’re pleased to offer guided tours for up to twenty individuals at a cost of $200. For more information, contact [email protected] or 718-222-4111 ext. 288.
