8. 16th Annual Holiday Train Show at the New York Transit Museum Annex
There are plenty of activities geared towards transit buffs and railroad enthusiasts this Christmas. The 16th Annual Holiday Train Show at the New York Transit Museum Annex (inside Grand Central Terminal) runs through the New Year, featuring model trains zipping through tunnels and past skyscrapers. The event, which presents a different theme every year, is free and open to the public. For more information, click here.
Brooklyn’s New York Transit Museum, located on the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street, is also offering highlight tours, where Museum Educators will share information about the construction of the subway system and showcase vintage subway cars that date back to 1904. Then, take an actual ride through the living history of the world’s largest rapid transit system (in area) by joining us for our Underground Tour of the NYC Subway. We’ll be weaving in and out of past and present transit hubs of lower Manhattan while learning about spaces even the most seasoned commuter might not know about.
