  • 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.
  • There really are not enough words in the English language for me to adequately express my gratitude to the staff at the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park and how they made the class trip for my college students a tremendously successful and fun educational experience. All the exhibits were interesting, and the Panorama of New York City has to be seen in person to really be appreciated. I highly recommend the Queens Museum if you are an educator as it is especially welcoming of groups of students of all ages. I guarantee you and your group will have a memorable experience at this museum in the park.
