  • I had never been to the Queens Museum before. It is located at the site of the 1964 Worlds Fair grounds. We went to see an exhibit, Never Built in New York, which contained plans, models and drawings ...  more »
  • The Queens Museum is a very welcoming place. The staff is very good-natured and wanting to help, but they really don’t seem to know a lot about what’s going on. In addition the exhibit, Unbuilt New Yo...  more »

  • I expected to see more then just 2 exhibits. If they are putting up more exhibits and they don’t have much to show then they should advise people on their site. The panorama of New York City was nice and the Tiffany exhibit was very, very small.
  • A must do while visiting NY. You get to see a panorama of not only manathan but also all around it. The giant 3D maps is an exact replica. There's also a time change and the parks glue in the dark and the buildings light up. Small airplanes flying on a string. Also about the 1939 & 1963-4 world exhibition. Reccomended.
  • By sheer coincidence I was reading 'Just kids' Patty Smith and 'Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk' at the time I attended the exhibit and I highly recommend them both as they were the perfect mental pallet cleansers to put you into the mindset of the early NY punk rock scene. Additionally I can't tell you how wonderful it was to comb over all of this modern day reliquary in the very hometown of the band. Nicely done.
  • This is a small museum. Without a performance or live exhibition, you can finish this museum in less than an hour. It doesn't have prominent works from famous artists (such as in the MOMA) but the collection of art work is still interesting. Currently, admission is $8 dollar for adults. That's not much to pay to support the arts. You can visit this place before/after enjoying a walk in the park or attending an event held in the area. Check out the calendar for workshops held in the Queens Museum if you want more to do.
  • Very nice museum. Crafts class was available for the kids. The kids enjoyed their visit and have asked to go back.
