Virtual Museum Highlights Tour

Thursday September 22

5:00 PM  –  6:00 PM

Housed underground in an authentic 1936 subway station in Downtown Brooklyn, the New York Transit Museum features exhibits about the history of public transportation in the region and our working platform level is home to a selection of vintage subway and elevated cars dating back to 1907.   


In this interactive tour, broadcast live from the Museum, we’ll explore exhibits, objects, and vintage trains currently on display, with the chance to vote on which stops our educator will make. Get a close look at details such as lighting, handholds, seating, and era-specific advertisements, and see how they have changed over time. Along the way, discover trivia and behind the scenes stories about the New York City transit system and Court Street Station, with time to chat and ask questions.
