  • A charming and energizing romp through New York City's world of trains, buses, trolleys, and streetcars. You can hit all the express stops in under an hour, or simply linger in the cushioned turn-of-the-century benches of the local line imagining the experience in decades long past. A perfect delight for kids of all ages and just informative enough to keep the adults entertained too.
  • This is a toddler's heaven on a rainy day! The history of the subway (and how it works) is all there but what 3 year old cares about that? This place has all the trains and busses to drive/ride that a toddler could ever dream of. Family membership definitely worth every penny!
  • Like stepping back in time. This museum is absolutely awesome! The turnstile and construction history is fascinating. My favorite part was just exploring the old subway cars complete with ads from the era. The staff are very knowledgeable, passionate, and helpful. This place is a must visit!
  • Great chance to see how the subway system developed over time. The brief exploration is made in a subway station. With most of the exhibits located there. Seeing the old trains and Turnstile is great.
  • Ever wonder how the subway came to be and the networking behind that scenes that makes it happen? Great spot to visit for a small admission fee. Its in an old subway which surprised me as I had visited on a whim. The tour was very fun and seeing some of these old cars really made me appreciate how far the subway has come since back in the 20th century. Will you stop you from hating your commute? Heck no, you'll just grin slightly less
