How to Buy Members’ Tickets


  • For specific questions about Old City Hall tour tickets, click here.
  • Members may buy as many tickets as there are people covered by their membership. For example, to buy two tour tickets, you’ll need a Dual 2 membership or higher. See the chart below for a full list of ticket allowances for each level. Please note that Child tickets on Family level membership and higher are only for youths ages 10 – 17. Children under 10 are not permitted on the Old City Hall tour. Museum guest passes are valid only for Museum admission, not special tours.

  • After you place the order, you’ll get an email receipt confirming your purchase.
  • The final step to secure your spot on behind the scenes tours is to submit a signed release form and a copy of a government-issued ID. Your email receipt will have instructions for this. All attendees must submit this paperwork well in advance of the tour so we can confirm your spot with MTA security.
  • There are no printed tickets for any Transit Museum tour. Your tour leader will have your and your guests’ names on a list.
  • You will receive an email the week of the tour reminding you where to meet.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before the tour departure time to check in with Transit Museum staff. Your name will be on the check in list – we’ll handle everything from there.
  • Enjoy the tour!

All ticket sales are final. Should you be unable to attend the tour on the date you reserved, the full price of unused tickets may be treated as a donation to the Transit Museum and is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. The Museum is not able to reschedule reservations to another tour date.
