New York Transit Museum

550 anmeldelser
Set in a decommissioned subway station in Brooklyn, the Transit Museum was opened in 1976 as part of America’s Bicentennial celebration. The original intention was for the museum to be temporary, but its displays of New York City transport memorabilia, subway dioramas, vintage streetcars and more proved so popular that the museum was made a permanent attraction.

In addition to a large archive of vintage photos, artifacts and documents (available to the public by appointment only) and rotating contemporary art exhibits, the museum presents three permanent exhibitions. Steel, Stone & Backbone: Building New York's Subways 1900-1925 is a thorough exploration of how the New York City subway was planned and implemented; the interactive Fare Collection features vintage turnstiles and modern-day MetroCard kiosks; and On the Streets: New York's Trolleys and Buses presents a simulated traffic intersection replete with a 12-seat bus, street signs, parking meters and fire hydrants, as well as histories of the men who electrified buses and streetcars.
