The neighborhood of Astoria is a great place to venture out and explore. We always say we get crazy when people visit New York and get stuck inside Manhattan. There’s a world to explore out of the island!

The Museum of Moving Image explains what they do:

“The Museum advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media by presenting exhibitions, education programs, significant moving-image works, interpretive programs, collecting and preserving moving-image related artifacts.

They have amazing exhibitions during the year! You can expect over 400 movie screenings, public discussions with creative professionals and their core exhibition with a behind the scenes view of the creative process involved in the piece.

Also, the changing exhibitions presents installations, videos, live events, educational programs, an amazing collection of artifacts related to the art, history, and technology.

Lastly, they have online projects presenting groundbreaking exhibitions.

The museum was fortunate to pass through a massive expansion in early 2011. It literally doubled it’s size and became even more beautiful.

We always have reading reaching out asking what they should do with small kids and teens.

Well, this is a fantastic option if you want to entertain them! Plus, you can explore a little bit of Queens, while there!

You’re actually not that far into Queens, so on your way back, you can pass through the famous MoMA PS1. If you are over 21, you can attend their PS1 Sunday Session parties, that happens only during the summer.
