The Queens Museum is dedicated to presenting the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the New York metropolitan area, and particularly for the residents of Queens, a uniquely diverse, ethnic, cultural, and international community. Its most famous exhibit is the Panorama of New York City. The museum recently underwent a massive expansion and renovation.
Many of the exhibits displayed in the Queens Museum are short-term, so there is always something new and exciting to see.
Inside the museum, there is a cute small café with decent-priced snacks and beverages. There is also a gift shop that carries a mix of art-inspired mementos. They also carry some jewelry that is original 1939 and 1964 World’s Fair Memorabilia.
Suggested admission is $8 for adults and children over 12 and $4 for students and seniors.
