Sunday October 06

12:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

Join the New York Transit Museum as we venture uptown from Grand Central Terminal to Woodlawn Cemetery on WWI-era Lo-V subway cars. Woodlawn station, designed by the subway’s chief architect Squire Vickers, opened in the Bronx on April 15, 1918. The subway’s arrival helped spur development of the area, which had begun following the opening of the cemetery in 1863.  During a 3-hour visit, guests will enjoy guided tours of Woodlawn Cemetery to learn about some of the famous businessmen, authors, artists, and musicians who reside there.

Tickets will be available to museum members at 10:00 am on Wednesday, August 14th. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public at 10:00 am on Thursday, August 15th.

Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for children for museum members, and $50 for adults and $25 for children for the general public.
