There is a subset of train nerds who specialize in trolleys (trams in Europe) the have a good collection. Some are being restored and you can get close to the work area. There is a short ride with some educational narration. The only problem is that they also take in stray buses and subway trains which are just sitting there... More

A little history and a lot of neat items to see. It was a really fun little stop when you need something to do.

I have visited this outstanding museum many times over the past 30 years and am always transported to early 1900 USA when public transportation was king! Before the advent of the auto and interstates, trolleys were clean,fast and usually safe for millions of riders. This museum is a constant reminder that new technology is not always better and sometimes worse!... More

totally unexpected! we passed this and turned around and went back to check it out. 3hours later, we both agreed that aside from Maine lobster, it was the highlight of the trip. It is amazing what dedication the members have to the collection and restoration of trollies and old buses. The place was a riot of color and things to... More

The trolley museum is located about three miles from Kennebunkport and is situated on land donated to the museum specifically so that the history and knowledge of the use of trolleys can be retained. The museum is funded by visitors and run, predominantly, by volunteers. As a result, the museum is not a slick and sterile place; it is a... More

The Drivers were very nice and quite funny. There are several large sheds to look around including and restoration Shed. They are currently restoring an old Blackpool... More

I visited several times over the years, most recently with my seven year old grandson. I will admit that we are both partial to trains, and train related activities. We had a great time, had a private tour and trolley ride, 1 1/2 hours long for no extra charge. Access to all kinds of equipmet is excellent, staff are wonderfull.... More

If you are in the Kennebunk area of Maine, stop over to the trolley museum. This little gem is nestled in the Kennebunkport area and could easily be driven by if you are not watching for it. It's a great museum and history of trolley history from the US and Canada. The best part is the restored and working trolley's... More
