Our day begins with a docent-led tour of the former home of jazz great Louis Armstrong. This Corona, Queens, house, with rooms frozen in time, will shed light on life and times of the king of jazz, through an exploration of segregation here at home, his travels throughout the world ad the transformation of the neighborhood from 1943 to the 1980s.
Then we'll hop on the bus and travel to Astoria, where we will have a quick luncheon and then walk to the Museum of the Moving Image. We will have a guided tour of the early film history collection and then plenty of time to visit the permanent exhibition, including the new installation of the Jim Henson Collection featuring the ever popular Muppets.
Cancellation Policy: Please note that refunds will be given only if space can be filled by another guest prior to trip. A waiting list will be compiled, and available spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Only those with who have made full payment can be accommodated.
