  • We loved this museum. Activate all the senses. It is an excellent choice of entertainment and culture at the same time

  • The Panorama is simply amazing. Allows you to get a sense of place and size of our historic city. The Tiffany glass and World's Fair collections are a draw, as well. Not an all day activity, but if you incorporate Flushing Meadow park, the Hall of Science, our small zoo, ice skating and/or eating in Corona- you have a great reason to venture into Queens.
  • The Panorama is a neat idea, but it just isn't that interesting in the age of google maps. If you are already touring the park, why not stop in the museum? If you are interested in the Worlds Fairs history there is a neat collection of memorabilia tucked away on the second floor, but the overall collection is very thin and not very interesting. So much empty space without exhibits!
  • 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.
  • The panorama of NYC they have is amazing! Loved the museum and the environment. It's a must in Queens.
  • Tiny but very nice. The entrance fee is fair. The must see is the NYC replica in small size, you can see the entire city and walk over it, it's an amazing experience.
