Queens Museum: All of NYC in One Room


Think New York is too big too see in one afternoon? For your next family getaway head to the Queens Museum, where you can show your kids all of the Big Apple in a single room. Make the gift shop your first stop and borrow some binoculars. They’ll come in handy when you enter The Panorama of the City of New York, a stunning display that just happens to be the largest scale model in the world. Your kids will be racing along the balconies for better looks at every single street, bridge, and building in all five boroughs. They’ll shout as they recognize icons like The Empire State Building and the tiny planes that fly in and out of a miniature LaGuardia. And when they’ve had their fill of feeling like giants, you can turn them loose in adjacent Corona Park. There you’ll find the Unisphere, a gleaming model of the Earth that dates back to the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, and will have your kids feeling immense again.
