Yes it has been changed before, The article of the post of NYguy says it all.
The model was made in 1964 for the NY World's Fair of that year that was held at the site of the Flushing-Meadows Corona Park. It is updated some time to time, as you can see in the pictures. It is claimed to include every single building in NYC constructed before 1992 when the last major update was made.
In the case of the Twin Towers, they were included in the update of 1992, they decided not to remove them until the new 1WTC is finished. More recently, they included all the buildings of Battery Park City.
The Panorama is located at the Queens Museum of Art.
