  • I really enjoyed this museum. I mean trains are fascinating so getting some background information on them, their existence and evolution was awesome!. Small gallery but packed with good information. Kids and adults will love this place. Keep in mind if you go in the summer months there will be summer camps visiting as well. I will go again in order to read with more focus. Only added 3 pictures so you can go and see the place for yourselves!!

  • The museum is nice. There is a lot to do and there is a lot to learn. Based on the person that gave us the tour I think they hire people that are young that is a good thing to do although they seem like they don't know much so i wasn't able to ask my more in depth questions. Otherwise then that it wasn't bad and if you have time to see the place you can learn a lot.

  • One of the best museums in the NYC. There’s so much info on the history of transit and how the system works, plus the buses, signs and the gift shop. The highlight of this place is definitely the trains on the platform down below. You’ll be spending a long time exploring the trains. Great museum for any transit enthusiast to visit.

  • Just as much fun for adults as it is for kids. Very interesting even if you arent into trains as it covers things that affect NY and delves into a lot of social and political issues. Great to play on the old trains and see the vintage advertisements. Quality gift shop, too. Only accessible by stairs which kinda sucks for the disabled and stroller crew.

  • Great breadth and depth of exhibits. I loved being able to see and walk onto subway cars from the early 1900s to more modern day. And there is a big diorama. My six-year old daughter loved the museum as well. Fun to walk down into a subway stop to find the museum.
