New York City Sights

Queens Museum of Art

Fodor's Review

Between the zoo and the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park lies the Queens Museum of Art. Don't miss the astonishing Panorama, a nearly 900,000-building model of NYC made for the 1964 World's Fair. Many unsuspecting park visitors looking for a bathroom instead find themselves spending hours exploring the intricate structures that replicate every block in the city. There are also rotating exhibitions of contemporary art and a permanent collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass. The museum recently doubled in size after a major expansion project, which resulted in more exhibitions and education departments, a café, bookstore, and places for children's activities. There are free guided tours on Sunday afternoons.
