In early 2017, our fourth floor will be transformed into a new destination for historical education and innovation. During the current renovation, objects from our permanent collection are on view throughout the Museum.

Grand Central Station has become one of New York's major icons. Vancouver yacht maker and carver Ivan Wilson was asked to carve a cane that celebrated the Station. The handle of the cane depicts the Greek God Mercury, as a statue of this figure is located on the building's facade. The station is depicted on the shaft.
