The New York Transit Museum
Like Stepping into a NYC Time Machine
If you're a native New Yorker this could be like stepping into a time machine. For everyone else it will be like being on a movie set. This is a NYC Hidden Gem. The entrance to the museum (see photo) looks like any normal subway entrance.
The Museum Entrance Looks Just Like a Subway
The Transit Museum is housed in a historic 1936 IND subway station in Downtown Brooklyn. You can find the entrance at the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street. The subway entrance stairs lead down to the mezzanine and platform.
