Located on the grounds of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs, the QMA holds one of the area’s most amazing sights: a 9,335sq ft scale model of New York City's five boroughs, featuring Lilliputian Gotham landmarks, created for the 1964 event. In early 2007, a long-overdue upgrade was unveiled: an updated lighting system now mimics the arc of the sun as it passes over NYC, while a 13-minute multimedia presentation explores the Panorama’s construction and spotlights various NYC attractions. Contemporary and outsider art exhibits have grown more bold and inventive here, garnering increasing acclaim.
