New York Transit Museum

Boerum Pl. and Schermerhorn St.

Home to transit lore and memorabilia, the New York Transit Museum is housed in an authentic 1930s Subway Station.  Their collection includes historic subway cars, various styles of the turnstile, a working  signal tower, and an exposed bus interior that doubles as a small theater.  The museum also features interactive activities for children, such as a pretend dynamite detonator for excavating subway tunnels and a hands-on fuel station.

The New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex in Grand Central Terminal presents changing exhibitions and great opportunities for souvenir shopping.
