Virtual Events & Parties

Planning a remote holiday party, staff happy hour, or birthday party? Celebrate in subway-style! Museum staff will take you and up to 30 guests on a Zoom tour of the Museum, located in a 1936 subway station, followed by an activity of your choosing. Visit some of our favorite vintage train cars and hear stories about fascinating events and people in NYC history. Then, have fun with an activity that’s right for your group.

All parties include:

  • 2 Transit Museum staff members who will host and keep the party moving!
  • A tour of the Museum’s platform, with time to ask questions and chat.
  • A participatory activity such as a round of Trivia, an Art Activity, or Breakout Rooms.

Choose your activity:

  • Transit Trivia – Answer questions that will put your NYC Transit knowledge to the test!
  • Transit Chats – Head into breakout rooms with transit-related prompts designed for fun and unexpected conversations with a smaller group.
  • Art Activity – Feeling creative? Gather a few simple supplies at home and make your own transit-inspired object.

Parties are 1-hour long and can be scheduled Tuesday through Friday between 12 pm and 7 pm.
