    The old cars are the best. They did a nice job with the adverts in each to reflect the times. Totally worth the $7. I'd say this is a definite underrated museum in New York.

    What a fantastic museum. It occupies an old subway station (Court St) and you can walk through over 100 years of subway cars downstairs.

    This is a fantastic museum. For only $7 you can tour subway cars from before the 20's thru current trains. Housed in the old Court St. station. Great for families.

    Museum lives in an old subway station - learn the history of the NYC subway development. Check out old subways cars on the lower level. No student discount.

    Great lil museum for killing some time, more kid orientated and more "displays to read" than anything else. Highlight is the old subway station downstairs with retro subway train stock.

    A fun visit. Gets warm and stuffy in the first half of the visit. The trains are the main treat/event and are fun to walk through. The advertisements are really cool dating back to the 19x0s.

    Take a nap on the basket weave seats in a 1930s subway car. Be disappointed there is no graffiti inside the 1980s subway car. Bring a sack lunch and be sure to check out the kids' art work!

    The only train car that doesn't display the manufacture date is the car that's in use today. Did they forget? ...or was it intentional?!!

    Be warned, there's no cafe or coffee shop here (crisis!). Bringing your own refreshments is encouraged, tables are provided. Oh, there is a water fountain. 😒

    If you like trains it's worth the trip. The museum is near the downtown area of Brooklyn- an area being gentrified in The last few years. Transit museum offers many neat photo ops.

    The museum is in abandoned subway station right across from the MTA HQ in Brooklyn. Come during a cool day as a majority of the museum is not air conditioned. Kids and Adults will enjoy this.
