  • Hey! Ho! Let's Go | Ramones and the birth of Punk exhibition was incredible! There were lots of posters, photographs (including the passport of each member of the band!), clothes, musical instruments ...  read more »
  • Nice Museum of art where the main attraction is a model (I dare not write model given the size of the room that she fills) of New York. Not that it justifies my senses this detour by Flushing. Naturally, they is always a good idea to consult their website to get an idea of the current exhibitions (personally, big fan of comics, I really enjoyed myself W drawings. Gropper)

  • If your in the neighborhood its worth going. But i would not make a special trip. I love the replica of ny in miniature. The Tiffany lamp exhibit is interesting. 
  • We were in the area looking a colleges so we decided to stop by. It's located on the 1964 World's Fair grounds which in itself are very cool and creepy at the same time. The site is dotted with eerie remnants of structures such as the NY Pavilion, Observation Platform and the Iconic Unisphere. The Unisphere, which is as shiny as the day it was built, is absolutely amazing. The Museum itself is very sparse and you can take it all in in about 1 hour or so but we did appreciate the equally amazing replica of the NYC boroughs. It's not it as a singular destination but if you are in the area it's highly recommended you stop in.
  • What a treasure. Where else can you see punk rock fans dancing to traditional Columbian music. Couple that with parking and access to the unisphere this place is truly special.
  • 5/2/15: This is my second visit to the museum and it was a wonderful experience. The highlight for me was seeing the "Panorama of the City of New York." It is a must-see 3D model of NYC's infrastructure and landscape that occupies a large high ceiling room. Another notable exhibit is the NYC Water Supply System that educates the viewer about where the city's water comes from. It's an excellent museum and is situated in a fantastic park.
  • A small modern art museum that also has exhibition of the history of the Corona Park. Great exhibitions, you can finish the tour in like an hour. But nice place to hangout for the weekend with a date or friends and then go to the park after.
  • I don't like the permanent city model that much. It's a bit outdated and takes so much space. The art exhibition area is quite small as the place works as a community/event space too. Anyway, the exhibitions are often surprisingly of high quality. I think Queens International is the most refreshing of all biennials/triennials in NYC which often follows the same trends. Many small pieces in this small museum tucked in the park far from subway are simply wonderful.
