Curious to know more about the system that moves millions of people each day? There's so much New York transit history hiding in plain sight! Take a ride through the subway with our expert guides from the New York Transit Museum, the go-to source for stories about New York's transportation. Visit stations old and new as we learn about the secrets of the subway, explore art and architecture, and view exclusive archival images from the Museum's collection along the way.


Underground NYC tours depart from Astor Place and visit 3-4 publicly accessible stations. In addition to the cost of the tour, two MetroCard swipes or OMNY taps are required. The underground tour will conclude at the New York Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn where you can explore our 1936 decommissioned subway station and vintage fleet of train cars. Your Underground NYC Tour ticket includes museum admission.


Afterward, you may look at your next daily commute through a whole new lens!
