We came here looking to see the site of the 1964 World's Fair, as my Grandad had an exhibit there. The park outside is quite run down, but this gem made the trip worthwhile. While most of the buildings in Flushing Meadows Corona Park have been torn down, if you can navigate to the Unisphere, the building next to it... More

This was the site of two world's fairs and they have some great exhibits on them. They also have a huge model of all 5 boroughs of NYC that is not to be missed.

This gem, right off the Grand Central Parkway, in Flushing, NY, was the home of the New York City exhibit of the 1939 World's Fair. The main focus is still artifacts from the two Fairs-1939 and 1964. Admission is very reasonable ($4 for seniors). There is a small cafe with nice selections and a gift shop without the usual kitch-even... More

This 40 year old art institution is a cultural gem, located in a pavilion building built specifically for the 1939 World's Fair and used briefly as headquarters for the United Nations General Assembly. Now, the Queens Museum has a very good collection of fine arts, Tiffany glass, and collections stemming from the 1939 and 1964 Worlds Fairs.. The Panorama of... More

I had a chance to visit the Queens Museum. I was particularly interested in the New York Worlds Fairs exhibit - seeing pictures from the ones held in New York brought back memories of my visits to the one held in the 60's. There is more to the museum, too, including a huge layout of the NYC area that you... More

The regular collection of Tiffany lamps is spellbinding! The signature exhibit of the model of NYC - vast - now used for city planning - drives home the immensity of NYC. The unexpected treat was an exhibit of Taiwanese artists incredible quality and creativity!!! Plus the Unisphere for the World's Fair of 1963 is terrific for people watching.

Most tourists never venture out of Manhattan for museums. That's really too bad, and the Queens Museum is a great example of a really interesting museum in the other boroughs. In what was the NYC building of the 1964 NY Worlds Fair, are several really fine exhibits. 1 still from the Fair is a an exact replica of all of... More
