    A really fun place to visit for both adults and kids.
    While there's a lot of interesting history about the subway, my favorite part is seeing the subway ads from the 40's and 50's - fascinating!

    This a fun place to get a glimpse into the beginnings of the subway system. The old subways cars and memorabilia are very interesting even for children. Worth the trip to Brooklyn.

    The museum itself exists in an old subway station and has two entire platforms of old subway cars to explore. It really is a trip down memory lane to the time of the good ole pre-blackberry days. The early subway cars had hand-woven wicker seats and hanging lamps – can you even imagine how long those would last today? Upstairs there are two city buses that little ones can sit in and pretend to drive as well as a lane of turnstiles. It is much like the transport museum in London – but a bit more gritty. This is after all, New York. There is also a nice little lunchroom to take a breather, so pack a lunch!
