Queens Museum of Art is located in Flushing Meadows Park – Corona, in a building constructed for the International Exhibition of 1939. The museum’s main attraction is a model of New York city, built for the World Fair held in 1964, it has 895,000 pieces, becoming the world's largest architectural model; every 15 minutes, a simulation of the night is on, in this New York miniature; looking at it, we have a broader picture of the city that we would observe from Rockefeller Center or the Empire State Building.

Another gem available to see in the museum is an extensive collection of Tiffany’s crystals, these pieces were part of a private collector set, highlighting the great lamp. And for history fans, the museum has a permanent collection of about 10000 items, where nearly 6000 correspond to two World Fairs held in New York in 1939 and 1964.

Our advice:

The first Thursday of each month, at evening hours, admission is free; other days you can pay a suggested price or whatever you want to donate.

If you have a social event, the museum rents saloons capable for 75 to 600 guests, you will count with qualified staff for planning and attending the event.
