Being able to take a short train ride into the city to visit a museum is one of the top five reasons we love living in Brooklyn. And there are so many to choose from! Though we enjoy going to the mammoth institutes that take all day to explore, such as the Moma or The Met, it’s nice to check out the lesser known spots as well.
This past weekend we took a trip to Chelsea to visit The Rubin Museum of Art, which highlights the “contemporary life and the art and ideas of the Himalayas and neighboring regions”. It’s a lovely space with lots to see. We spent about 2 hours in total and then got a delicious Himalayan lunch in their cafe. Right now they are showing “The World is Sound” which asks you to explore sound, mostly in the form of Buddhist chanting, using your whole body. There was also a riveting photography exhibit called Henri Cartier-Bresson: India in Full Frame. Check out the gallery below!
