The Queens Museum is housed in the original New York City Pavilion of the 1939 World’s Fair, now much expanded and modernized. Six galleries, ranging from 800 to 2,400 square feet, allow for concurrent exhibitions of different scales and flexible curatorial choices.

The Museum concentrates on Modern and Contemporary arts that relate to their contemporary urban constituency.  Holdings includes a notable selection of Tiffany lamps, on long-term display.
