Located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park

The Queens Museum of Art presents changing exhibitions of 20th century and contemporary art. Each exhibition is supported by educational and film programs, including workshops, lectures, tours and symposia.

Featured at the Museum is the Panorama of the City of New York, the world's largest architectural scale model, developed by Robert Moses and built by Lester Associates for the 1964 New York World's Fair. The Panorama, built at a scale of 1 inch to 100 feet has every building in the City of New York, as well as accurately representing the City's topography, parks and transportation network.

The Museum also features the permanent exhibition, "A Panoramic View: The History of the New York City Building and its Site," concerning the Museum building's history in two New York World's Fairs and as temporary United Nations headquarters between 1946-52. Both the Museum and the Panorama were completely renovated in 1994 under a design by international architect Rafael Vinoly.
