Excerpt from book: THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM A collection of birds, shells and fishes exhibited by the old Brooklyn Institute in 1854 may be regarded as the nucleus of the present Brooklyn Museum, which was organized in 1890 and is maintained as a public institution under the auspices and direction of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences.
