This architectural marvel, built for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson and consists of three sections - the observation towers, the Theaterama, and the "Tent of Tomorrow".
Today you will have the rare opportunity to enter the "Tent of Tomorrow" where about six-million fair-goers once experienced live performances, used a microwave oven to heat their lunch, rode a high speed escalator, and walked along the highways of a huge map.
While you will view from a restricted area, you will have a "front row" position to see most all of what remains today of this the largest and tallest pavilion at the World's Fair.
Please keep the line moving and limit the time spent inside the pavilion to no more than 15 minutes so that all our guests can enjoy a meaningful experience.
