Calling all educators, museum professionals, and transit enthusiasts! Join us for a Museum Mashup at the New York Transit Museum where you can test out your experimental program ideas, interpret objects in new ways, and see our beloved subway station through fresh eyes. We’ll collaborate to create new activities in our galleries, freeing ourselves from constraints and using our imaginations to guide us. Following the Mashup, we’ll have time to network with other attendees. This program is part of International Museum Mashup Day, a worldwide event that encourages experimentation in the museum field.

Behind the Scenes: Substation #13

Saturday, February 25 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Robert W. Lobenstein leading tour of Substation #13

When New York’s first subway opened on October 27, 1904, Substation #13 was one of eight powering the line. Located in Midtown Manhattan, the substation remained active until December 15th, 1999 when all 25 cycle power feeders from the IRT 59th Street Powerhouse were cut. While this substation was modernized with new power equipment to continue energizing the subway, it still contains two original rotary converters and switchboards installed over 115 years ago. Join long-time Museum guide and historian Robert W. Lobenstein, former General Superintendent for Power Systems at New York City Transit, to tour Substation #13 and see its equipment, including the recently-restored Rotary #1.
