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.

Housed underground in an authentic 1936 subway station in Downtown Brooklyn, this train-lover’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.

* Look for a subway station entrance on the Northwest corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street. The stairway will lead you down to the Museum.

* There is no cell phone service in the Museum. If you plan to visit with others, coordinate in advance and enter together.

* This historic site does not have an elevator; travel light or be prepared to carry strollers down multiple flights of stairs. If someone in the groups needs to use the accessible entrance, email [email protected] in advance.

* While a few of the exhibits on the mezzanine have air conditioning and heat, most of the Museum (including the entire platform level with the historic trains), does not have climate control.
