Using tours, exhibitions, educational programs and workshops the museum is able to present the development of New York’s incredible system, which in many ways is the circulatory system of the living city.
The museum was first opened 40 years ago in downtown Brooklyn in an historic 1936 IND subway station. Since then the museum has continued to grow both in its scope and popularity. Visitors will be treated to amazing and informative exhibits such as “Steel, Stone, and Backbone,” which takes visitors on a tour of how New York’s 100 year-old subway system was built. “On the Streets” takes an in-depth look at the City’s system of busses and trolleys.
The New York Transit Museum is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm; Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm and closed on Mondays and major holidays and sometimes for special events. For more information visit their website.
