Its temporary exhibitions and collection of Tiffany glass are second to none. Also note the museum building’s colorful history: It was constructed for the 1939 World’s Fair, occupied by the General Assembly of the United Nations and used again for the World’s Fair of 1964 and 1965. The three-dimensional map of New York, the Panorama, was constructed for the latter World’s Fair and is regularly updated for viewing.

Museums & Galleries World’s Fair Visible Storage

The Queens Museum is tightly linked with the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs and the Museum's collection includes more than 10,000 objects from the Fairs. One key piece of the Museum's 2013 expansion is the permanent World’s Fair Visible Storage and Gallery, which displays nearly one thousand three-dimensional pieces arranged by the date and category, allowing people to explore and study the collection. Most items were formerly off-limits to the public and are on display for the first time in the Museum's history.
