As the largest museum of public transportation history in the United States, and one of the premier institutions of its kind in the world, the Transit Museum is one of New York City’s most unique venues for private and corporate events.

The Transit Museum is housed in a 1936 decommissioned, but still operational, subway station – the perfect setting for a museum dedicated to mass transit, and a truly New York special event.

Various spaces throughout the museum are available for events, including the platform level where guests may board over 20 vintage and elevated cars.

The Transit Museum is also available to the media community for film, video, and photo shoots.

For more information, including rates and availability, and/or to schedule a walk-through of the facility, please contact the Museum’s Special Events coordinator at (718) 694-1770 or e-mail.
