This museum has been collecting cars since 1939. It is an amazing collection, and one of the most amazing parts is that we could get close to all of the cars. I hope that someone is able to donate the type of money that will...More

I've always really liked museums having to do with transportation. This museum is outstanding. Originally from Boston, much of what they had were trains I road as a kid. Made me feel young again. They had trains, trolleys and buses from all eras and even...More

Awesome visit to the trolley museum. These trolleys are a work of art. Great to see the restoration efforts. They have trolleys from around the world including England. Fun family afternoon.

If you're on vacation, the Trolley museum is an awesome spot if you bump into some rain or clouds. Especially if your kids love trains like mine do. Nice little gift shop, very knowledgeable volunteers, cool history, and an amazing collection of trolley cars, trains,...More

Provides a hands-on history lesson as to the way people got around 70-125 years ago. Electric vehicles are certainly not new! The volunteer staff are welcoming and engaging and can guide you.. or you can walk thru the trolley collection on your own. Riding the...More

The museum is mostly run by volunteers and their love for preserving this piece of history is very evident. We took the trolley ride which is about 1 & 1/2 miles. The conductor explained the history of streetcars and their resurgence in some cities today....More

There are of course much better places to see restored trolleys and buses. But A+ for effort and how much the volunteers are putting in to bring these back to life.
