  • We went for the World's Fair exhibit -- including the panorama of NYC. Well worth the visit; wish they had more World's Fair items on display though. We also walked around the old fair site...

  • Absolutely amazing free museum that is well worth a visit if you’re in the area. While the museum seems very large on the outside, the inside only contains a few exhibits but each exhibit is very spacious with a large interior area to relax and soak in the ambiance. The highlight of the museum is the fully accurate model as presented in the world fair. The Panorama of the City of New York was presented at the 1964 Fair and it is absolutely amazing. You can still find it some buildings that haven’t changed since 1964 and accurate to this day. There’s even small airplanes that fly and land.
  • Great museum; I dare say a very underrated one in New York City. We could spend one afternoon at The Panorama. I went there on a Sunday morning and I have joined a free guided tour. The staff has been very attentive and friendly. I strongly recommend visiting it.
