New York Transit Museum
The New York Transit Museum, housed in an authentic decommissioned 1930s 60,000 square foot bi-level subway station in Brooklyn Heights. It is the custodian of the most extensive collection of urban transportation materials in the United States. The New York Transit Museum is one of only a few museums in the world dedicated to telling the story of urban mass transit from the people who developed it and are served by it to the city and region it has helped to shape. The Museum boasts a collection of vintage subway trains, along with a wide array of exhibits, programs, film screenings, and workshops.

One would be surprised at the Tranist Museum maybe never even think to go there because one rides the trains all the time but it is nothign like that It is clean spotless. Now that was a welcoming and the workers were pleasant. The only complaint we had was the gift shop is a bit expensive; otherwise we had a great time and plan on going back.
