Event description: Many animals sleep deeply in underground caves or tunnels during winter to keep warm and safe. Subway trains also need to rest in their depots, to recharge and get ready for their work in the city’s busy subway system. Each session of this Saturday morning series of games and stories focuses on a sleepy animal that sometimes moves, sleeps and rests very much like the subway.

The New York Transit Museum, one of the city's leading cultural institutions, is the largest museum in the United States devoted to urban public transportation history, and one of the premier institutions of its kind in the world. The Museum explores the development of the greater New York metropolitan region through the presentation of exhibitions, tours, educational programs, and workshops dealing with the cultural, social, and technological history of public transportation. Since its inception nearly 40 years ago, the Museum, housed in a historic 1936 IND subway station in Downtown Brooklyn, has grown in scope and popularity. As custodian and interpreter of the region's extensive public transportation networks, the Museum strives to share, through its public programs, this rich and vibrant history with local, regional, and international audiences.
