The New York Transit Museum is the largest museum in the United States devoted to urban public transportation history.
Really interesting museum in an old station. Great place.
Located in a subway station. They have old subway cars downstairs. Have a look at the ads in the trains.
Check out all the real vintage subway cars downstairs in this decommissioned station.
So much fun!
Super musée, très abordable et très intéressant. Les enfants y trouveront leur compte !
This isn't the best museum in New York; it's the best museum in the world.
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.
An awesome museum place for the kids. The track level is great.
Become a member for access to great tours like the old City Hall station
So much fun for a 2 year old with a train obsession and really interesting for adults . It's cold in there in the winter!!
Nice museum not more than an hour outing with kids
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.
Go underground and sit in the oldest MTA subway trains!
For less than $10 you can walk through all the old subway cars. Loved looking at all the old advertisements.
Interesting. Spent all day here and never wanna leave.
Housed in a former 1930's subway station
Check out all the old ads in the subway cars.
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.
Not just for kids! Surprisingly inexpensive, and a great place to take photos
The free guided tour was awesome. Try to get Ryan as a guide.
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?!!
One of the coolest museums in NYC. It's in an old subway stop and they've got all the old subway cars and buses.
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.
Loved the museum great for kids! Loved when I went with with my friends & my little girl!
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.
The entrance is located across the road from 130 Livingston St. Go down the faux subway entrance on Schemerhorn.
Great museum! Enjoyed looking at the trolley a
Custodian of the most extensive collection of urban transportation materials in the United States, this museum has free guided tours and lectures for families, history buffs, and everyone in between.
Don't miss the ads in the old subway cars located on the lower level
Check out the old busses and the subway cars with their old ads. Really cool stuff
Great place for history of NY transit
Be sure to check out the exhibit on laying down the first subway tracks, and imagine what it felt like working in compressed air tunnels under the east river!
Come here if you love trains!
Weekday hours are not long enough.
Absolutely worth your day and your $7. Tons of trains (I mean a ton), interactive exhibits, and history. Will keep all ages entertained for hours. In a decommissioned subway station. BYO lunch area!
Take a pic near a vintage subway car.
nice museum. legit
Highly recommended both for the exhibits - interesting for adults but many child-friendly too - as well as the amazing vintage subway cars that you can explore.
Take lots of pics and dont miss the vintage subway ads especially the Bond movie poster!
Don't forget to take a look at the old ads in the subway cars!
Make sure to go on the weekend, free public yours and free kids programs!! Learn so much!
Great museum! They have a whole station worth of old school subways and trolleys. You'll feel like your stepping back in time or on a movie set!
Pay your fare there!!!
Find the free guided tour and join it ASAP. Even if it's halfway thru.
One of the best transport museums I've seen anywhere, with a large collection of historic trains as well as informative displays. Well worth visiting.
If you ever wanted to those cool horizontal posters you see on the newer trains, they sell them at the gift shop!
