Two days after the new Queens Museum finally opened its doors on November 9, it welcomed NYC families for a free day of artsy fun on Veterans Day. They took gallery tours, checking out the museum's debut shows, among them "Pedro Reyes: The People's United Nations" and the largely black-and-white "Peter Schumann: The Shatterer"; got hands-on with various art-making workshops—from circuit bending and storytime to puppet making and Korean brush painting—and visited the beloved Panorama of the City of New York, the famous scale model of New York City's five boroughs. Click through our slide show to find your family—or to get inspired to visit this gorgeous institution this fall.
