    The exhibits here are wonderful. The facility is small but packed with something to enjoy. They even have a glass staircase (ala Apple Store).

    Go see the model of New York City. It's a little outdated but the scale and detail are beautiful.

    If you visit for the exhibits, check the events calendar first - there was loud music playing and could be heard all throughout the museum!

    The Panorama is a must-see. It’s a 3-D map of all of New York City. Fun fact: Queens Museum’s building was once housed the General Assembly of the United Nations.

    This edifice is among the most storied landmarks that once housed the United Nations. It was constructed for the 1939 World’s Fair and hosted exhibits for both that event and the one in 1964. Read more

    If you come with your friends to gawk at the NYC Panorama, bring a laser pointer so you can point out landmarks to each other.

    Make the trek just for the New York City Panorama – it’s absolutely worth it. Afterwards, take a stroll around the Unisphere and the World’s Fair Pavilion.

    I could have stared at the panorama for hours. It should be a NYC rite of passage to come here and try to find your apartment. I also found the Detroit photography exhibit facinating.

    Ditto what others say: the Panorama is a must see. I love how artists regularly interact w/ the model of NYC to give it new meanings. And I appreciate QMA's commitment to immigrant, POC, LGBT artists.
