Price hike! Brooklyn Museum raises its ‘suggested’ donation
The Brooklyn Paper
by Juliet Linderman
The cash-strapped Brooklyn Museum has increased its “suggested” admission fee $12, a 20-percent jump caused by the poor economy, museum officials said.
“The financial climate is such that we unfortunately need to raise the prices of suggested admission to cover the costs of operation — presenting exhibits, personnel, a whole range of things,” said Museum spokeswoman Sally Williams.
NoLandGrab: Well, increasing the admission price is better than the museum doing this again.
