We recently had a scheduled overnight near La Guardia in Queens. Looking for things to do near our hotel, I located the Queens Museum in walking distance from our hotel. On the day we visited they were in the process of changing out the art exhibits. We still made our donation and visited several of the permanent displays. The "Panorama... More

This quiet museum well out of the tourist areas holds The Neustadt Tiffany Collection. The collection was owned by Dr Egon Neustadt. As a lover of Tiffany glass we took the No7 Subway to visit it. It was well worth the trip. The collection is reasonably sized having various examples of Tiffany Lamps and Glass Ware. The museum was almost... More

I heard about The Queens Museum through the Wikipedia and am so glad that I stopped by while strolling through the Flushing Meadows–Corona Park. Their museum is dedicated to presenting the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the New York metropolitan area and particularly for the residents of Queens, a uniquely diverse, ethnic, cultural, and international...

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

I went here with my wife and we learned so much. There are very historical paintings that would simply amaze you. After this visit I became very into art.
