I haven't visited the Queens Museum in about 15 years. Last time I was there there was still an ice skating rink. The admission fee is suggested at $8 and seniors at $4. We were hoping to see a museum about Queens or Art from Queens. We got neither. The NYC Panorama is still there...always a crowd pleaser and a... More

Interesting place to kill time with the kids, was an interesting learning experience and the kids had fun learning experience. Seems like there are more adult focused exhibits like arts collections as such but we did not get to see them.

Yesterday we were looking for an interesting place to spend two hours before the flight home from LGA. Never in our many trips through that airport did we expect to see such fine exhibits so close by and with free parking. The large exhibit describing how and where NYC's water comes from was quite interesting. Coming from the desert out... More

Visited the museum yesterday and liked it. There was a celebration of the Hindu Holi festival , and "earth and water Day" and there were so many dance troops from different cultures. It was free and parking is free at this museum too though it is limited. It is great that the museum works with the community to host celebrations... More

The museum itself, now known as The Queens Museum, was nice enough, with a wide variety of exhibits. But when we asked at the admissions desk about the special Friday film we wanted to see, we were assured that films were only on Wednesdays. After further enquiry and pointing out the flyer on the desk, arrangements were made to start... More

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
