Special needs families will have exclusive use of the Museum for the first hour, from 10am to 11am.
At 10:15 and 11:15, Norma Grant will lead a family art project using MTA maps and metrocards. From 10am-2pm, Paula the Signal Tower Operator, a historical Transit Museum character, will greet visitors on the Museum’s platform level.
