Beach Bound: Coney Island

July 20, 2019 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$50 / $35 Museum Members

Grab a seat on a beach-bound Nostalgia Ride heading to Coney Island! Board our 1910s BMT B-Type Standards and 1930s IND R1-9 cars for a two-hour jaunt to Coney Island from 96th Street/2nd Avenue. Once we arrive at Stillwell Avenue, brave the rides at Luna Park, check out the action on the legendary Boardwalk, or try one of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs. You can also visit the New York Transit Museum’s exhibition Five Cents to Dreamland: A Trip to Coney Island, on loan and on display at the Coney Island Museum. Ride our vintage train back to Manhattan at approximately 4pm, or stay late to take in sunset on the beach before making your own way home.


Tickets for the general public are $50 for adults and $25 for children. Tickets for museum members are $35 for adults and $20 for children.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. No ticket sales will be completed on the platform the day of the event.
