Mark your calendars and break out your Blue Guides: it’s nearly time for the Panorama Challenge! Once again, The City Reliquary, Queens Museum, & The Levys’ Unique New York! have partnered for an exciting evening of trivia with the whole city at your feet. Meet us at the world’s largest architectural scale model – The Panorama of the City of New York at the Queens Museum!

Panorama Challenge quizzes players on all things NYC. MC Gary Dennis reads questions while our judges highlight clues on the Panorama using lasers (well, laser pointers). Players in teams of 10 (or so) use those clues (and musical hints!) to determine the correct answer.

Quizmaster Jonathan Turer returns for his eighth year with another batch of new questions. This year, categories may include: Signs in Elmhurst, Revolutionary NYC, Rock of Ages (geology), Tunnel Time, and Old Time Religion (notable houses of worship). (Start building your teams accordingly!) The ever-popular Halftime Quiz will also return!

Teams may organize as Panorama Challengers or Panorama Pros. Challengers are first‐timers or those who have not dedicated their lives to the study of NYC. Their questions will be easier!  Pros are returning contestants and die‐hard students of our city’s hidden corners. They answer twice as many questions per round (60 total!) Friendly tour guides from The Levys’ Unique New York! will help match contestants to teams.

The winning Pro team will join the ranks of legendary past winners when its name is etched on the Panorama Challenge Trophy housed at the Queens Museum!

Our judges this year include author, urban explorer, and abandoned observation deck aficionado Moses Gates, and Dean of New York City tour guides Lee Gelber, with others soon to be announced!

Proceeds from admission and concessions support The City Reliquary Museum and Queens Museum.

A free shuttle, generously provided by DaVinci Limo & Tours, will travel between the Queens Museum and under the Mets‐Willets Point 7 stop from 5:30-7 pm and 9-10 pm.
