Happy to see no restaurant here.
There is a dining space for visitors who have brought their own food or drink while chilling.
Do not forget museum is on two levels and coming as family may be demanding there is a lot to see, explore and have a lot of fun.
Museum has two original bus cabins for visitors – children and adults to experience and turn this steering wheel.
Artifacts from historic subway and bus operations, as well as NYC transportation infrastructure, are on display.
