2019 Calendar mini Events

Sunday, April 28, 2019 1:00 p.m. – "The Streets of Rochester"

The New York Museum of Transportation continues its Sunday WinterFun 2019 series with a presentation by Jim Dierks featuring street scenes selected from the museum's photo archives. Mr. Dierks' illustrated talk will take place on Sunday, April 28 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. The presentation is free with the family friendly admission of $4 adults and $3 for youths age 3 – 12.

While Rochester evolved during the 20th Century, its transportation alternatives changed too. Vintage photos in this slide presentation show early trolley cars, autos, trucks and buses, along with the streets, buildings and people of long ago.

The many trolley cars, steam locomotive, and fire truck at the New York Museum of Transportation will all be doing their part to illustrate transportation history in “hands-on” fashion, while numerous exhibits of photos, models and artwork are sure to delight visitors of all ages. An exhibit of the Midtown Plaza Monorail is the museum's newest vehicle for telling our area's transportation story.

The museum is open Sundays only, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is located at 6393 East River Road, West Henrietta, NY. Take I-390 south to exit 11, NY Rt. 251 West, then 1 mile north on East River Road. (585) 533-1113.
