After a much needed renovation, The Queens Museum of Art was so very disappointing overall, but two of the exhibits were well worth the trip-things to know: -see my review for the “Louis Armstrong House Museum”…make two destinations on one trip… -easy access (7 train directly from Times Square) -nice park (best time to visit is any time except during...

After years of benign neglect, this building has been renovated and improved for a beautiful showcase for art. It will boast traveling exhibits and an awesome 1000 sq ft panoramic model of all five boroughs of NYC. It is located on the grounds of the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs, with some sculpture and buildings left behind. In the same... More

The museum is relatively small but the highlight is the Panorama. If you live in the city it is fun to try to find your block. There are some other interesting exhibits as well including one on the world fairs. (This building is the only one that remains from the 1939 worlds fair and was also where the UN first... More

Great exhibit since it is at the site of the 1964 World's Fair. The Tiffany exhibit is wonderful, and I liked the Andy Warhol exhibit.

Enjoyed our visit to the Queens Museum of Art. The City Panorama was well done and so interesting. The Tiffany lamps exhibit was beautiful. That was as good as the Panorama to me. If you go to visit - check on hours of operations - the day we visited it opened at noon. The entry fee is a 'suggestion' but... More

We came to this museum for the first time, thanks to the New York City Panorama being mentioned in Teju Cole's excellent little book, "Open City". Besides the Panorama, we expected to see a lot of good art, comparable to the Brooklyn Museum. Our expectations were seriously thwarted. The Panorama itself, a huge model of New York City with all...

This large structure from the 1939 Worlds Fair was the New York City Building and now houses some interesting exhibits making it a good place to visit for a few hours. The main attraction is a panorama of the city of NY, built to scale. It covers a massive area--you walk on ramps around it and parts you can walk... More

well, yes folks! There is a movement going on that will raise eyebrows very soon. The refurbishing of the art museum, formerly the ice skating rink , is underway. I recently attended a fabulous exhibit and think you should as well. Cjheck it out…the weather is getting better and you can walk the ground afterwords. Enjoy!!

Before getting to know the city, if you want to have an eye-bird's view of the whole 5 boroughs, is worth taking a trip here.. I obviously recommend the other top attractions but this one not too many people know about.. I always take my people here and they love it!

The Queens Museum is in a very historic location: site of 2 World's Fair's and the initial home of the United Nations after its founding. Despite this illustrious history, the museum is very disappointing. The art on display is not interesting at all and the World's Fair collection is pretty average. The one reason to make the trek out here... More
