    The New York city model is unbelievable, worth the trip to queens. Build t in 1964 it was Renovated in1992, that's why you can see the twin towers and battery park city

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

    It's a small museum. The best part is definitely the diorama of New York City circa 1992. The Tiffany lamps are stunning, there's a few dozen examples here.

    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.

    Check out the pUN exhibit and obviously the panorama. Renovated museum looks great. This museum connects with the community. A special place.

    The Queens Museum underwent a $69 million expansion a year and a half ago that doubled the institution's size with expanded galleries, a new sky-lit atrium, and artist studio wing.

    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

    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.

    Gear up for their Passport Fridays series in the summer where a different country is highlighted every week. Get cultured by the dance,music, and film related to highlighted country.

    The three-dimensional map of New York, the Panorama, is a must-see attraction. It was constructed for the 1964 World’s Fair and is regularly updated for viewing.

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

    After visiting the Hemisphere don't forget to visit Panorama in the queens museum. It's impressive and absolutely free!

    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.

    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.
