The New York Transit Museum, one of
the city's leading cultural institutions is the largest museum in the United
States devoted to urban public transportation history, and one of the premier
institutions of its kind in the world. The Museum explores the development of
the greater New York Metropolitan region through the presentations of
exhibitions, tours, educational programs, and workshops dealing with the
cultural, social, and technological history of public transportation. Since
its inception over a quarter century ago, the Museum, housed in a historic
1936 IND subway station in Brooklyn Heights, has grown in scope and
popularity. As custodian and interpreter of the region's extensive public
transportation networks, the Museum strives to share, through its public
programs, this rich and vibrant history with local, regional, and
international audiences. (*from NY Transit Museum web site:
