Housed underground in an authentic 1936 subway station in Downtown Brooklyn, this toddler’s dream hosts a working platform level spanning a full city block and a rotating selection of twenty vintage subway and elevated cars dating back to 1907. Board vintage cars, sit at the wheel of a city bus, step through a time tunnel of turnstiles, and explore changing exhibits that highlight the cultural, social and technological history – and future – of mass transit.

$: $10 $5/ages 2-17 & 62+

Current Kid-Friendly Exhibits:

On the Streets: New York’s Trolleys and Buses (through Dec 31)

Learn about ground mobility and surface transit from the early 1800s to the present by exploring a real life city bus, “fishbowl” bus cab, walk-don’t walk signs, parking meters, fire hydrants, traffic lights, and an array of other interactive “street furniture.”
