Virtual Museum Highlights Tour
Wednesday, July 12, 2023
3:00 PM ET
Housed underground in an authentic 1936 subway station in Downtown Brooklyn, the Transit Museum’s working platform level is home to a selection of vintage subway and elevated cars dating back to 1907.
Join staff to virtually walk the Museum's platform and explore our vintage train cars and objects. Get a close look at lighting, handholds, seating, and era specific advertisements. Along the way, learn behind-the-scenes stories about New York’s transit system and Court Street Station. We will make a special visit to our R-10 car, currently featuring a display of illustrations by Amelia “Oppy” Opdyke Jones—the creative force behind the Subway Sun advertising campaigns.
All attendees are welcome. You will have the option to turn on automatic captions for this virtual program. Staff will share instructions for how to do so at the start of the event. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
