The Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn is reopening to the public on Saturday, August 14th!
Since its inception over 40 years ago, the Museum – which is housed in a historic 1936 IND subway station – has grown to become the largest museum in the US devoted to urban public transportation history. Two special exhibits that launched prior to the pandemic are back on view, including “Reign of the Redbirds,” dedicated to the crimson trains from the 1960s, and “Streetscapes and Subways,” a treasure trove of photographs documenting the construction of the city’s underground train network more than 100 years ago.
With the amount of transit work we do, we can't wait to plan our visit!
The New York Transit Museum is located inside the old Court Street station at 99 Schermerhorn Street at the corner of Boerum Place in Downtown Brooklyn.
Admission is $10 ($5 for kids and seniors).
It reopens Saturday, August 14 at 11 a.m.
Museum members can enjoy early access with an exclusive Member Preview Day on Friday, August 13. Regular hours are: Fridays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
