This was the perfect rainy day activity. As if it wasn't cool enough to have miniature New York City in the building it also goes through a daylight cycle. This panorama is especially beautiful during the "nighttime" display Also you don't want to miss the...More

I’m originally from Queens and drive past the museum hundreds of times and never visited. It sits in Flushing Meadow Park in a very tranquil area. The art inside is Latin influenced and there are exhibits featuring items from the old Worlds Fairs. Another fun...More

This museum will always have a special spot in my heart. I remember it from my childhood as part of the World's Fair. In more recent times, my daughter had a painting displayed here.

I was amazed by the Unisphere and Panorama of New York City! The park is beautiful; the fountains were not operational during my visit but I bet they are amazing! I highly recommend this as a sunny day outing!

I had the good fortune to decorate this otherwise stark venue for a friends' wedding. Although the wedding went off well and beautiful, and everyone enjoyed themselves, the people in charge behind the scenes were nasty and totally unaccommodating to the independent contractors who were...More

Museum is rather usual, yet very spacious and nice to visit. I din't find anything authentic like in other art museums. Staff is friendly. However the panorama is unique, walking above it I felt like flying over New York, and was amazed to see the...More

We visited the Queens Museum for the first time in many years. In the interim, they have expanded and remodel, and extended their collection. Their primary focus is on artists and artisans who live in Queens. This visit we had a chance to view their...More
