Join the Transit Museum online and explore innovative transportation! Children with developmental disabilities or those on the autism spectrum and their families are invited to join us online for a free, fun afternoon program. Author and musician Michael Hearst will share some of his favorite quirky and unusual vehicles from his album and book Unconventional Vehicles: Forty-Five of the Strangest Cars, Trains, Planes, Submersibles, Dirigibles, and Rockets, and sing some original tunes. We will explore our vintage train cars during a virtual tour of the Museum’s subway platform and design a vehicle inspired by what we’ve seen.

All ages welcome! Admission to this program is FREE and will be conducted using the Zoom platform. Upon registration, all participants will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions on how to participate. We encourage you to download the Zoom app in advance for the best user experience.

A social narrative will be emailed in advance of the program for your family to learn more about the activities and what to expect during a Zoom event. To request additional accommodations, please email access@nytransitmuseum.org by May 19th.
