  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great way to spend a few hours of your time learning about this particular niche of NYC history. It's entirely underground, built in an old subway station. Lots of details about early transit systems and the construction of the subways. They have historic cars on the lower level that you can walk through. Also, a good amount of contemporary information on 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy.
