The New York Transit Museum has a fascinating and unique history. The former Court Street station in downtown Brooklyn, once home to the HH shuttle train, opened in 1936 but closed ten years later due to low ridership. Court Street station opened as the New York Transit Exhibit as part of the celebration of the United States bicentennial in 1976, and today is home to the New York Transit Museum, the largest museum in North America devoted to public transportation.

Join Visitor Experience Facilitator Niko Goutakolis for a digital discussion about the origin story of the New York Transit Museum and discover our 46-year history beneath the surface.


Limited spots available! RSVP NOW!
