The Panorama Challenge will test participants' knowledge of New York.

For the 11th year in a row, the Queens Museum will host the Panorama Challenge, a trivia night meant to test challengers’ knowledge of New York City facts.

The challenge will take place at the world’s largest architectural scale model at the museum, which is located at Flushing Meadows Corona Park grounds. On March 2, MC Matt Apter will read questions prepared by quizmaster Jonathan Turer.

Judges will highlight clues on the architectural model with a laser and categories will include Gotham Gangsters on Film; McKim, Mead & White sites; the Grammys; the movie “Wonderstruck”; and the exhibit “Never Built New York” at the Queens Museum.

Teams of 10 will use the clues and musical hints to find the correct answers and teams can organize as Panorama Challengers or Panorama Pros. Challengers will have easier questions while Pros will answer twice as many questions per round for a total of 60. Tour guides from The Levys’ Unique New York, which provides private and group tours in New York City, will match contestants to teams.

All-woman Afro-Brazilian samba reggae percussion band Batala New York will perform while judges tally the scores and contestants will be able to purchase sandwiches, snacks and beverages. Rockaway Brewing Company will provide beer.

The winning Pros team will have its name etched on the Panorama Challenge Trophy at the Queens Museum.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the challenge will officially start at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $15 online and $20 at the door. For Queens Museum and City Reliquary members, tickets cost $12 online and $15 at the door.

A free shuttle bus will travel from the Mets-Willets Point 7 train stop from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m.
