Origin Stories

The Transit Museum will be 43 years old on July 4, 2019! To celebrate this anniversary, Transit Talks will focus on how the museum got started, including how we maneuvered some of our most interesting objects into the station. Join us for a short tour and discussion around our origin story and the origin stories of Museums around the city.



Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays are free, and pre-Registration is not required for drop-in events. Seniors ages 62+ receive free admission every Wednesday. 

About Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays: 

Relive the experience of traveling through New York City during the early, mid and late twentieth century! Explore our hands-on collection of vintage subway and elevated cars and exhibits that share the rich story of public transportation. Discover the history, technology, design and future of transportation.

Please Note: The New York Transit Museum is located in a decommissioned subway station at 99 Schermerhorn Street, on the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The Museum is accessible by over 20 bus and subway lines. 

The entrance to the Museum is down two flights of stairs. A second, wheelchair-accessible entrance is located on the corner of Schermerhorn and Court Streets. For information on wheelchair access, American Sign Language interpreters, Assisted Listening Devices, or other accessibility matters please visit the accessibility page on the Museum’s website.
