Events At This Venue
Missed Connections. We’ve all had one (especially if you’re a frequent rider of that packed rush-hour L Train), and the New York Transit Museum wants to hear about it. Submit your best love-in-transit story and head to NYTM on Valentine’s Day to enjoy some Brooklyn brews and meet your future spouse. And hey, if it doesn’t work out, you’ll at least get to meet fellow romantics and enjoy some great beer.
Go subterranean on Thursday, January 17 from 7-9 pm at the New York Transit Museum for their first-ever underground Trivia Night. For just $15 (or $10 if you are a Transit Museum or Transportation Alternatives member) you can join trivia masters Stuart Post and Chris Kelley for a night of transit-themed trivia. Each ticket comes with a drink, and all refreshments are provided by the Brooklyn Brewery. Teams of 2-6 are required, with prizes for the top teams and a chance for all to explore the museum during intermission. Tickets are available online here-don’t miss out!
What do the Velvet Underground’s Loaded and Simon and Garfunkel’s Wednesday Morning, 3AM have in common? Both covers prominently feature NYC’s subway. Celebrate our latest exhibit Album Tracks: Subway Record Covers with an evening of good times underground at the New York Transit Museum.
Get down and channel your inner musical superstar by fronting live band karaoke with The Golden Boyz, showing us your rock face with album cover photography in our vintage subway cars and grooving to vinyl classics while enjoying Brooklyn Brewery refreshments.
Tickets are $10 ahead, $15 at the door and $5 off for NYTM members!
Prizes! Fame! Fortune! Back by popular demand—meet your match at round two of our transit trivia battle. Trivia masters Stuart Post and Chris Kelley co-host a (second) contest like no other, set against the backdrop of our very own Court Street Station. Hustle up a two-to-six person team of transit superstars or make new friends on the spot. Study up — this crowd runs on the FastTrack!
And because this looks like such a good time (see above!), Brooklyn Brewery beer will be lovingly provided.
Tickets are $15, $10 for Museum Members. Get ‘em here.
Don’t miss our 4th annual Missed Connections program, a love in transit party for all would-be romantics! Come spin Craigslist postings about those “lost subway love matches” into poetry and music. Art, local Brooklyn tastings, including Brooklyn Brewery beer, valentine-making, a photo booth, and perhaps the future love of your life await you.
