Visit the Old Stone House

Bring your family to visit the Old Stone House.

Our permanent exhibit: Old Stone House: Witness To War is a self-directed exhibit that takes visitors on a journey through the Revolutionary Era in Brooklyn from 1776 until 1783. Ten themed areas allow visitors to explore this history and consider how war impacted the community, what choices citizens had to make at the time, battle strategies, and what makes these issues relevant in today’s world.

Brooklyn Utopias: 2020 * addresses Brooklyn’s past, present and future by inviting artists to consider differing visions of an ideal Brooklyn. Participating artists also explore how Brooklyn has continued to change over the past decade, and if/how it can serve as a model for urban and American living on a national scale as we navigate a global pandemic in a time of unprecedented social, political and environmental turmoil. Brooklyn Utopias also implies the possibilities (or limitations) of art in creating a better world.

*Located in the 2nd floor Great Room which is not handicapped accessible. Public restrooms are accessed on the side of the building.
