nyc panorama is amazing
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.
The exhibits here are wonderful. The facility is small but packed with something to enjoy. They even have a glass staircase (ala Apple Store).
Check out the model of the 5 boughs
A very interesting collection of Indian and other modern and contemporary art pieces. Very refreshing and original
Go! Overlooked but well worth the trip. If only for the panorama.
Panorama is pretty cool
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 It's a little outdated but the scale and detail are beautiful.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!
The giant model of NYC is the coolest thing ever.
DO NOT MISS the Panorama room. Full scale model of NYC is incredible
Free admissions for Bloomberg employee and 1 guest
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.
Today, I was here to cut the ribbon on the Queens Museum of Art expansion.
This is a great museum. The best part is the New York Panorama.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
On 4/12/11, I was here to break ground on the Queens Museum of Art expansion. More details on the expansion are available here: http://bit.ly/HCb0Y5
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.
Impresionante maqueta !!
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.
Passport Fridays one of the best events in town! Don't miss it
like T-Rex standing on the 5 boros

A great place to go to on a cold winter day! Lot's of cool exhibits.
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.
Maybe my favorite museum in New York.
Extremly disappointed in lack of variety. This museum trip lasted all of 10 minutes. Was not worth the trip
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.
Panorama is a must see. Wonderful resource. Great location (and cool t-shirts in gift store).
Just went here for the first time. It is a treasure hidden in the park.
