Old Terminal Full Of History – Don't miss this historical piece. For only $5 I was able to get a history lesson, learn about the NY transit system and I got to step back into history because it was in an old rail station. This place was huge and I can't believe it was only $5. I will be at this place the next time I get back to NY. It is so full of info and historical items that you can get it all in the first time! Don't miss this chance to see and touch history!
Public transportation's multifaceted story is detailed at the Court Street subway station. – In Short
The museum's display of transit-related artifacts ranges from two tracks worth of historic subway cars to archival movie posters of films featuring mass transit. NYTM has plenty of interactive components for kids, including a pretend dynamite detonator for excavating subway tunnels, an operable bus cab and a hands-on fuel station. Visitors can also see an array of transit maps, miniature trolleys and an exposed bus interior that doubles as a small theater for film shorts.
