In a city like New York, the center of the art world, it is so refreshing to see a true vanguard art museum that gives exciting young artists the chance to exhibit, cares about its local community, is family friendly, and inexpensive. I've been to museums around the world and this unique place, while a little tough to get to, is a glimpse into the future of the urban art museum. If this place were in Manhattan it would be world renowned for its cutting edge programming but stuck out in Queens it continues to be a destination for those who are tired of the same old blue chip artists and white-haired ladies. Take the trip out and then stay in Queens for some of the city's best food.

I went in on a wet afternoon to get some shelter from the rain. While I was there a man came on a bike. He asked if he could leave it inside. There were no bike racks or place to lock it outside. The receptionist sad wait I'll ask. No. So he left.

He was the only person I saw all afternoon who wanted to go in. Except for some tall guy drying off, who did'nt want to go in because of the $5 fee. The receptionist said go in anyway. He came out a few minutes later.

I don't blame him. All I saw was a bunch of wheelchairs stuck on and under wooden crates with some burnt plastic attached.

C'mon I understand the need for a pork barrel project to make it look like Queens has art museums and is'nt just a souless empty cultural wasteland, but PU-LEESE.

Its great to showcase great local artists when you have them, but if you don't - (........ ) - What you do is confuse people into thinking any old rubbish is art.

That benefits nobody, not even the lucky minority
artists you picked.

How's about a few loaners from MOMA or the MET? They have so much GREAT art, they can't find places to store it!! The people of Queens would see great art and learn how to recognize it from junk.

And...Oh, you might want to install a bike rack in front, for the one guy who really wanted to visit.

Now you know, and I know, this is'nt going to make
it on to the review page. It will be rejected. Probably by the same person who told the customer to get back on his bike. The truth hurts, and endures after this review
is deleted.

I found this to be a nice place to go with my family. My boys loved the pictures they displayed. They are real life pictures. The parking lot was a bit of a distance from the museum but a nice walk. The staff are nice and they have a store where you can purchase items. You will really enjoy this museum. The park is also wonderful.

Located in the second largest park in NYC, right near the famous Unisphere, and the Arthur Ashe tennis court, this museum is worth the trip.

The biggest draw here is The Panorama of the City of New York. A to scale representation of the city, almost entirely accurate, it was originally created for the World's Fair in 1964. The walk around the panorama simulates the helicopter ride you could have taken back in 1964, it circles the entire city providing a great view and wonderful opportunity for pictures.

The museum also features other exhibits, including one focusing on Tiffany lamps and windows.

This museum has the famous panorama of New York. It really is something to see, especially the night scene. The rest of their exhibits are worthwhile, but you can usually breeze through those in less than an hour. The main attraction at this museum is the New York Panorama. Its location in Flushing Meadows Park is also an advantage.
