Visited in November. Explored the "Whole Different Bowl Game" exhibit. Thought the display was interesting but lacked some written explanations of several of the Video Sports items on display. The Jim Henson exhibit was delightful. Many of the hands-on exhibits were broken or lacked sufficient...More
A great place, near big studios, a scenography taking you into the movie and television history, exploring every part of it: cameras, sound recordings, editing, TV cameras, broadcasting. Great space for temporary exhibitions also, and a theater to enjoy oldies but goodies.
Visited with my 16 year old and it was a big hit with both of us. It is just about a 15 minute walk from the N train stop in Queens. The Jim Henson exhibit was awesome. Exhibits from his entire career. The rest of...More
This was the highlight of my trip. Basically, this is a museum for Jim Henson. Yes, there's other stuff, but his exhibit is the heart of the museum. So it's a good thing my wife and I love the muppets. You get to walk through...More
I came across this museum whilst researching things to do on our NYC visit and this ticked all the boxes and more. The film memorabilia is great too see and currently there is a Jim Henson Exhibition - so many childhood muppets! Our teenage daughter...More
Off the beaten track, but so much FUN! the guided tour is worth it. Explore the different eras and technologies. Mix visual effects with different sound tracks. Awesome for laughs, ugghhs, and wow, that works as good as the actual sound track.
Just go and...More
The Museum of the Moving Image is a wonderful little museum. It’s reasonably priced ($15 per adult), and it’s in a cool area (near actual movie studio). The current exhibits show some amazing things such as Jim Henson’s many works, and some cool things with...More
I have travelled to NYC hundreds of times & never heard of this museum. Our 13 year old grandson discovered it on line & we took him on a recent visit. We all had a great time, especially with the interactive exhibits. It does take...More
I spent more than 4 hours with my friends in the museum and didn't feel satisfied enough because this museum is so interesting! It has lots of interactive devices to engage the audience into the technology of films and digital arts. The core exhibition is...More

From Times Square, catch the R train (subway) towards Queens. Use the Steinway Street exit. The ride should take no more than 30 mins. Once you get off, walk towards the back of the train and exit at 34 Ave. Then, walk one block to 35 Ave, take a right and go three block.

I just can't resist can I. Anyway, for what will be my last NYC trip for at least 12 months* is fast approaching, I'm slowly planning a light itinerary to do, and finally ticking off a few things off my list, that any tourist should do regardless. So, Intrepid, a self guided walking tour of the UWS, Guggenheim Museum, and also a trip to the Statue of Liberty are on my list, along with 2 Baseball Games. I'm also spending part of a day in Queens, visiting both PS1, and Museum of the...More

" I need something to do on Staten Island" Snug Harbor for the Chinese Garden also visit the 9/11 S.I. monument that is located the water not to far from the Ferry. You can take a bus to Snug Harbor. One more things for those who might not know you cannot walk from Manhattan to Staten Island. Unless you can walk on water, then no problem.
Is this Queens itinerary do-able? (12 Replies)
I'm planning to spend a day or an afternoon in Queens - mainly to see the city Panorama, but am getting information overload from all the posts in the FAQ section! My plan is to head for Flushing Meadows Park and the Queens Museum for late morning, spend the afternoon there and then on to the Museum of the Moving Image. I'll probably try and make the trip on a Friday, to take advantage of the late opening for MMI. I have a few questions; How easy is it to get from Queens Museum to MMI? (I...More

Hi! I'm here for you. 1. It's not anywhere near walkable. You have to take the 7 train to Queensboro Plaza, switch to the N, take that to 36th Avenue, and walk over about 7 blocks. Takes about 40 minutes. Doable, just a hike. 2. There is no food in Flushing Meadows, although there is lots of Chinese food in Flushing. But you'd have to get on the train to get to Flushing anyway. Just eat in Astoria. I strongly suggest going to Cafe Bar at the corner of 34th Avenue and 36th Street, which...More
Museums on Friday night-Met, Museum of Moving Image-crowded? (17 Replies)
I'm helping plan a first New York trip for 11, 15, and 17 year olds. On Friday, the Met is open until 9pm and the Museum of the Moving Image is open until 8pm. Will they be more crowded then than during the day? Especially, the Moving Image which is free 4-8pm on Friday. Thanks

If you mean MOMA in midtown then it's incredibly busy at those times. Expect a queue to get in and then big crowds around the popular artwork like Starry Nights by Van Gogh. The Met is also busier than normal but to me it seems less crowded because it's bigger.
