Features: The Queens Museum of Art seeks to promote the visual arts by designing and providing art exhibitions, public events, and educational workshops. Almost 10,000 items are collected here, including numerous glass works from the Tiffany Studios. The museum is located in Queens, in the New York City Building that was constructed for the 1939 World’s Fair.
Why We Go: One of New York's most underappreciated museums, the Queens Museum of Art offers quality exhibitions at an exceptional price without the Manhattan crowds.
- The Panorama: Perhaps the most famous attraction at the Queens Museum of Art is the Panorama, a scale model of New York City's five boroughs built for the 1964 World's Fair. Even those with no interest in models will be blown away by the Panorama's scope and attention to detail. It is truly a sight to behold.
- Diverse Art Collection: The Queens Museum of Art boasts a permanent collection of 10,000 items, 6,000 of which are documents and objects related to the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs. The museum also houses the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany glass, which features windows, lamps, and related objects made by the Tiffany Studios.
- Passport Fridays: Friday evenings during the summer, the Queens Museum of Art offers free dance and music performances and free outdoor film screenings at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The series has grown in popularity since its debut in 2004, and now attracts major contemporary dance companies.
Inside Knowledge: The Queens Museum of Art is located in the historic New York City Building, the only major structure remaining from the 1939 World's Fair. The same structure was used for both the United Nations General Assembly and the 1964 World's Fair; in fact, the pavilion only came to house the Queens Museum of Art in 1972. The museum was renovated in 1994 and is currently undergoing an expansion that will double its floor space.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Admire the Panorama: If you visit the Queens Museum of Art, you must see the Panorama. This model of the five boroughs of New York was first unveiled at the 1964 World's Fair, and has been a sensation ever since.
- Do Grab a Snack: The Unisphere Cafe, located on site at the Queens Museum of Art, offers sushi, desserts, and beverages on weekends, so you won't have to tour the museum on an empty stomach.
- Don't Pay Manhattan Prices: Unlike most museums in Manhattan, which charge between $12 and $20 for adult admission, the Queens Museum of Art charges only $5 for adult admission and $2.50 for kids. With the money you save, you can buy a snack at the on-site cafe or even pay admission for a friend.
- Don't Miss Passport Fridays: Fridays are special at the Queens Museum of Art. Every Friday during the summer, the museum offers live music and dance performances and outdoor film screenings at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. It's a family-friendly event, so the kids can come, too. Best of all, it's free.
