Q:
Is it allowed to check luggage at the Brooklyn Museum? We are planning on visiting theee on our last day in NYC, right before heading to LaGuardia Airport. Being able to leave our bags at the coat check (we will each have 1 suitcase with us) would make everything go smoothly.

Apologies. Just saw your question. This response may be moot at this point. I don't know the answer. Digging through the museum's website I saw nothing on left luggage. I did searches with a number of terms. It doesn't mean they don't have it. Since 9/11 I believe that many organizations have stopped offering that.
