We had a few hours between landing at JFK and picking up another in our party at LGA, so we stopped by the Queens Museum of Art--what a lovely lil' find. Nice spot to spend a couple of hours on a lovely day.

Yes this is an art museum yet it is so much more. I stepped back in time to the 1964 Worlds Fair. Pictures, interactive computer animations, videos, antiques from the fair and audio all served their purpose to transport me back not only to the 1964 fair but also the 1939 fair that also took place in the same location....

The Queens Museum has been recently renovated. It is a fifteen minute walk from the subway. The building is very spacious, airy & not fatigue inducing. Of special note is the huge panorama of the city of New York. The permanent (I think) Tiffany lamp collection is quite impressive. And of course there is the normal revolving schedule of temporary...

The art is fine at this museum. It's a large space and the art tends to be from some less-known artists. The real draw here is the Panorama. This is the largest architectural model in the world. It's all five boroughs of New York City. It's really spectacular.

Model of NYC and exhibits from World's Fair were my favorites. Spent 2 hours and saw most of the exhibits. Had a picnic with friends by the Globe outside.

My family and I needed some culture. Different than what we were experiencing in times Square, etc... i researched this park and we decided to go. The neighborhood was a little sketchy, and i have to admit that the park is hurting in the maintenance department. But the history there is amazing. We went to the museum and were happy... More

Looking for something off the beaten path in the NY area? Check out the Queens Museum of Art. Today we rode the tandem bike from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to the park in Queens that has all the old Worlds Fair relics. Inside the museum is a wonderful exhibit with tchotchkes and photos from the 1939-40 fair as well as the... More

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
