We are two couples with husbands who will drive, fly, do anything that sparks their adrenaline. While the museum is a bunch of trolley cars, some are actually very interesting even to the wives. What really made it fun was the "Be a Motorman" program in which one can learn how to drive a trolley along a 2.5 mile track... More

Nice place. Buy your ticket and take a ride in an old time electric car. Knowledgable people give you a glimpse into a more simple time. Oddly enough they have old buses on the property as well

Stopped here with the kids (1 and 3 yrs old) and had a blast! They had fun riding the trolley and the conductor let them ring the bell and pull the steam whistle. The ride is about 1.6 miles and a knowledgeable volunteer gives you the history of trolleys and the interesting history of how the trolley museum got started.... More

Was looking for an interesting place to take some photos, so I stopped at the Seacoast Trolley Museum. Lots to see and learn about transportation of days gone by. The $10 ticket also includes rawhides one of the trollies.

I visited as part of a contingent of conventioneers so my review may be a bit biased. This is a great museum as it not only has vehicles in static displays but also an operating loop of some distance. I say loop but it is actually a straight section with reversing loops at each end. The ride on this line... More

My girlfriend and I had visited the museum earlier this year and came back with her family to show them around. We had a different guide and conductor, which means we learned new things that we weren't told the first time. There were also some new additions to the museum and we were able to ride on a trolley we... More

Now I see where a lot of the old streetcars have retired to. It's a fun place to visit for all ages. Most of the staff working are volunteers and are knowledgeable and have great stories to tell. The ride was the best part, although the museum is filled with memorabilia & pictures of days gone by. Will visit again... More

On my visit to the museum we went on the trolley ride, and explored all the barns and garages which held the restored and partially restored trolleys. The ride was fun and the conductor gave us a lot of information on how the trolleys came to be. Most of the trolleys being restored are accessible and looking around inside was... More

Lots and lots of subway trains and trolleys, the highlight was the 3 mile ride on a completely refurbished trolley out in the forest, and the stories we were told during that trip. Our three year old loved it!

Very accomidating staff, we had some Canadian visitors, so they dragged out the "Golden Chariot" Montreal sight seeing trolley. Acres of old trolleys, subway cars, buses, and assorted parts. If you like transportation or just old stuff a great day out.
