  • This museum has lots of fascinating elements of New York's transit over more than 100 years. I found the sections on how Hurricane Sandy and 9/11 affected the city and were handled by the MTA particul...  more »
  • This has one of the best entrances to any museum anywhere and though it should not be a surprise it still comes across as fun. The museum is not large and some of the exhibits are pointless and poorly...  more »
  • This was a unique museum experience, looking back in time in terms of the subways and El trains. Very interesting! The old ads on the subways were quite entertaining.  more »

  • I love taking my students here for field trips. They love the old trains and buses. The guide Roberto that we had was great! You could tell that he was trained to work with students with disabilities because he was very patient, had many visuals and understood the needs of my students. I would even like to go back here without my students because the history of the transit system is fascinating and you can really learn a lot.
  • I loved the place, super cool trains and nice facts about new york's subway system. Id showed you more But I recorded lots of videos, didn't focus that much on photos. Price is dumb cheap. 10 bucks :). 100/10 would totally recommend.
  • This is my favorite museum. It's quaint, never super crowded, and SO interesting. They have actual train cars and buses from the days of yore that you can go in. Also you can go through ALL the old turnstiles. I love this place. Take a girl (or boy) here. You won't regret it.
  • Had a great time in this interactive museum. My 4yrs old son loved it. Great for kids
  • In an old unused subway station. See cars from the early 1900's in restored condition. Reflect on the differences in the advertisements between then and now.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
