The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum has restored, and operates for the public a trolley car built in 1896 (one of the oldest operating trolleys in the country) for the Shelburne Falls and Colrain Street Railway. Your all-Day-Pass includes a trip back in time on the trolley (bring your imagination), a self-powered ride on our antique pump car and a chance to explore our Visitors Center, with pictures, toy trains and more.

I visited here with a friend and we had a blast climbing in the caboose, riding the trolley and pumping the pump car up and down the tracks. Informative guide was charming with her stories of the bygone era of trolleys. Enjoyable for everyone.

The museum was closed when we got there, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the experience of taking photos of old trolleys. Best of all, the experience was free. :)

I've lived in Western Mass for over 20 years, but I had never been to the Trolley Museum. Trolley rides are fairly inexpensive and a mere $4 ticket will give you an all day pass. You can even challenge yourself to try the hand pump...More

My grandson loves trains and whales. After a visit to the Bridge of Flowers, which was not so interesting to my young grandsons, this was more to their liking. My eldest grandson especially liked being able to help man the pull car.
