    This jewel of a museum sports a 9,335-square-foot model of New York called the Panorama, making its choice art exhibitions icing on its curatorial cake.

    See the Panorama of the City of New York! Guaranteed one of the most awesome things you will ever see. Read more

    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.

    Today, I was here to cut the ribbon on the Queens Museum of Art expansion.

    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.

    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.

    Just went here for the first time. It is a treasure hidden in the park.

    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.

    Extremly disappointed in lack of variety. This museum trip lasted all of 10 minutes. Was not worth the trip

    Panorama is a must see. Wonderful resource. Great location (and cool t-shirts in gift store).

    Designed by Robert Moses, “The Panorama of the City of New York” is compulsory viewing for anyone living in the city: a 9,335 square foot model of the city's 320 square miles and 895,000 buildings.

  • NYC: The Official Guide

    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.

    NYC: The Official Guide · July 1, 2013

    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

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 It's a little outdated but the scale and detail are beautiful.

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

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

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

    This is a great museum. The best part is the New York Panorama.

    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.

    Every second Sunday in a month is open art workshop for kids 5 & up (free)

    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.
