    Train buffs would LOVE the multi-level museum. It is in the actual subway station, so it it underground. It isn't air-conditioned so it was quite warm when we visited. The artifacts include turnstiles...  more »

    I could have spent hours here. Unfortunately my kids didn't share the same level of interest, and it was quite hot inside so we left before I was ready to. The information is very interesting and plen...  more »

    The front of the museum is quite deceiving...it seems small and without very much, but there are loads of trains from all different eras for you to climb all over! Loved all the adverts in the trains ...  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.

    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.
