  • Such a big, historic place (was part of the 1964 World's Fair complex and housed the UN for a few years), yet there is very little there. When we visited (early March 2019) the panoramic exhibit and Tiffany glass exhibit was about it. Panoramic was super cool, but pretty basic and there is so much more that could have been shared to fill in the blanks. It was a nice day so we also strolled around outside to take in the universe (globe) and what most of us know now as "the Men in Black" towers. Again, both part of the World's Fair complex. Queens has such a rich and diverse history, wish there would have been more.
  • Quaint museum that showcase lots lesser know talents, very progressive. The diorama model of New York City is impressive, it was used much before the digital age for city planning and wind shear affect on NYC streets. UN General Assembly adopted the Plan as resolution 181 in this building. The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and a Special International Regime for the city of Jerusalem.
