Museum of Whimsy

The Museum of Whimsy in downtown Astoria is a museum like no other. Its unique collections, assembled over many years with an eye to the curious, the whimsical and the fantastic, are displayed in the architectural splendor of Wicks' neo-classical bank building of 1924, refurbished in grand style and itself an integral part of the MoW experience. Welcome to the Museum of Whimsy, where all who enter will be reminded without any doubt that the world we all share is an infinitely wacky, uplifting and intriguing place! So come on, come along to the MoW, and expect the unexpected!

Sorry! We're closed for the winter. The MoW will reopen on March 3, 2017. For the latest information, see us on Facebook!
