Queens Museum reviews
I was here for a meeting last week. The museum is beautiful with historic displays of Queens and NYC. The museum is a little out of the way, and it is confusing to get there by public transport... more »
Big globe and not dissimilar to the one at Trump Plaza at Central Park. Fascinating place. Recommended more »
The Queens Museum’s admission ticket fee is not expensive. Kids under 18 can get in for free which is very nice. The cafe opens on weekends and the panorama is beautiful and very cool. It showcases New York during the daytime and nighttime. You can find every single building built before 1992. It is detailed and the tour guide uses it to teach you about New York City. For example the ‘Bronx’ is supposed to be called ‘The Bronx’.
The Queens museum is really cool and really big. The admission ticket for children under 18 is free so you don't really need to spend a lot. The tour guides are really nice and the Panorama was super cool. It shows us the 5 boroughs and has almost every building there is. They teach you very interesting facts like how The Bronx is called The Bronx and not just Bronx.
