Fun history

I learned a lot, and was far more interested than I expected to be. I especially enjoyed the ride on the trolley. A totally unique experience.

So glad you checked us out - I had the same reaction the first time I visited - and now I work here! The ride IS enjoyable, and because our volunteers explain how streetcars expanded people's lives, it makes the experience memorable and informative as well. More

Great trolley tour with a very happy and informant driver. There are several stops along the tour and you may get on and off at your convenience.

I think you are referring to "Intown Trolley" which is a bus tour company in Kennebunkport, and they do indeed provide a very good experience! We - Seashore Trolley Museum - are located several miles from the center of Kennebunkport, and our museum experience (open May-Oct and for the two weekends of Prelude) includes riding on our private railroad in...

Went here with 4 kids (2-9) during Xmas Prelude. The museum part is pretty small and quick. There were a few interactive exhibits the kids could play in but not a ton. The trolley ride itself was OK, really pretty quick and its not like the scenery is great. The kids had a decent time, but wasn't a place they... More

Thank you for visiting during Prelude! We can offer a broader experience during our regular season, when our exhibit barns are open, more cars are operating, and our operators provide insight into the history of our cars and the eras in which they operated. Warm weather months are also ideal for enjoying the big outdoor campus and even disembarking at... More

As part of the Kennebunk Prelude to Christmas, the Trolley Museum's website shows some beautiful scenery riding the historic trolleys'. This year... it was in the 50s and there was not a lot of "pretty". The museum store is well-maintained facility for the train buff. Having had great uncles who drove Trolley's in the early 1900s, this was an interesting... More

We stopped by and it was not opened as advertised. But still had a swell time trespassing and looking at the train cars. On this trip go ahead and stop by Walker Point where the (Walker)Bush Presidents famously vacationed.

Spent a great day at the museum. Lots of old buses and trains in varying condition to be viewed. The place is mainly manned by enthusiasts who are happy to chat about many aspects of the exhibits. Highlight is a trip up the line on a trolley bus with a kowledgeable driver. You can also pay, either 40 or 60... More

Spent the day with the family at the museum, and everyone had a blast. You are able to walk around and check out all of the trolley cars they have running, under repairs or being prepared for restoration. Highly recommend coming here during the fall time for the changing of the leaves. Everyone will have a great day and you... More
