The Queens Museum with what’s left of the World’s Fair observation deck in the background

The Queens Museum is the only surviving building from both the 1939 and 1964/65 World’s Fair, the latter of which had significant influence from Walt Disney and his Imagineers.

Today, the building is home to the Queens Museum, an art and education center in the heart of Flushing Meadows Corona Park which features an exhibit devoted to displaying World’s Fair memorabilia.
