New York’s subway system runs 24-hours/day, 7 days/week.
The base fare per ride is $2.50, payable with a MetroCard, which can be purchased in any station.
A 7-day MetroCard, with unlimited rides, is $30, and likely your best bet if staying for the full duration of the conference, or beyond. More information about using the subway is available here.
The Brooklyn Museum is conveniently located directly on the 2 / 3 subway line, with a dedicated subway stop—Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum.
From the conference hotel, the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, simply take the 2 / 3 line from the Borough Hall stop until you reach the Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum stop. In ideal conditions, the trip should take under 20 minutes.
From elsewhere in Manhattan, take the 2 / 3 line directly to Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum, take the 4 / 5 and transfer to the 2 / 3 at Nevins Street, or take the B, D, Q, N, or R to Atlantic Avenue/Barclay Center, and then transfer to the 2 / 3.
