If you’re interested in the museums of NYC, you’ve likely heard of such giants as The Met, The Museum of Natural History, or The Guggenheim. These museums are all worth your time and effort on your next trip to New York. However, our team at VTI Van Rentals would be remiss if we didn’t encourage you to check out the Queens Museum.
Queens is one of the city’s major hubs of culture and diversity, all of which is reflected in the Queens Museum. The museum is a rare gem whose goal is to present “the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the New York metropolitan area, and particularly for the residents of Queens, a uniquely diverse, ethnic, cultural, and international community” (Queens Museum website).
They do just that through ongoing and special art exhibits, support for local artists, and public programs that promote art education and enjoyment. Examples of such programs include:
- Queens Museum Childrens’ Book Celebration
- School programming for students grades pre-K through 12
- Queens Teens program for local youth
- New New Yorkers, a free multilingual program in partnership with the Queens Library
These programs and events are only a few of the examples of how the Queens Museum interacts with the local community. While the larger, more well-known museums are fantastic, we urge you not to miss out on discovering the local culture at the Queens Museum.
