What’s Old is New Again: Recent Acquisitions— Gallery Talk

July 30, 2019 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free with Museum Admission

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 Curator Desiree Alden for a discussion of What’s Old is New Again: Recent Acquisitions, an exhibition that highlights a selection of these transit treasures which have been acquired over the last decade and are now part of the Transit Museum’s collection of documents, photographs, ephemera, and artifacts.

Pre-Registration is not required for this drop-in event, which is included with your museum admission. Please see the Plan Your Visit page for information and directions.
