Inside the Archives: Collecting Transportation Stories
Thursday, July 25 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10 / Free for Members
Historical objects help us learn about the past, and link us to the present and the future. At the New York Transit Museum, archivists, curators, and educators acquire artifacts of all sizes, from vintage buses to individual subway tokens, to help tell the ever-evolving story of mass transportation and its role in the development of New York City and the surrounding metropolitan region.
Join New York Transit Museum archives and collections staff as they bring objects to life through an engaging presentation and discussion. Learn how the Museum acquires and preserves objects and archival materials, and view recent acquisitions in the current exhibition, What’s Old is New Again: Recent Acquisitions.
