Don’t step into this historic subway station in Downtown Brooklyn expecting to catch a train. Located in an authentic subway station that was decommissioned in 1936, the New York Transit Museum celebrates the region’s public transportation network and highlights all of its ins and outs—from construction equipment to vintage subway cars to typography in the stations. The Transit Museum also has a gallery annex and gift shop at Grand Central Terminal with rotating exhibits, and a gift shop at 2 Broadway in Lower Manhattan featuring iconic MTA-themed gifts.
