It was interesting to see how far trains have come. Very interesting for train enthusiasts. The kids had fun on the buses too.
Grand Central station is amazing even when just going on the metro, the restaurants handy, shops pretty good and food outlets
The exhibit was tiny, but interesting. In includes a lost and found exhibit featuring items lost in Grand Central Station. Some items even dated back to the 1920s. They had a few films, and old subway maps. We only stayed there for about 20 minutes, but it was worth our time.

Took my 10 year old nephew who loves trains... The first part of the museum was uber boring for him but not me. I enjoyed reading of the history, how they built the tunnels, and how minorities helped but were unfortunately discrimminated against. The most exciting was the buses and turnstiles on the main floor. I loved reading the history... More
While I am a transit/rail enthusiast, I had low expectations for this museum, considering the $6 admission cost (prices went up by $1 the day before we arrived), but I must say we were all pleasantly surprised at the number and quality of exhibits. First, the location itself - the museum is housed in an abandoned subway station in downtown... More
