The Queens Museum is a contemporary art museum located in Flushing Meadows Park. The most prominent piece in their collection is the Panorama of the City of New York. "This 9,335 square foot architectural model features 895,000 buildings in all five boroughs. Through guided museum experiences, gallery activities and studio workshops students engage in the panorama as a jumping off point to explore New York’s geography, landmarks, bridges, parks, communities, history, and city planning." Additional programs include an in depth study of the city's watershed, explorations of Tiffany lamps through the Neustadt Collecton of Tiffany Glass, and a rotating selection of international contemporary works in the museums art galleries.
There is no place for visiting school groups to eat in the museum. We advise visiting groups to picnic in the adjacent Flushing Meadows Corona Park or make alternate lunch plans.
