Absolutely loved this historic trolley museum! The trolley ride on the old fashioned trolley was a blast, our driver was adorable and told some great stories about the trolley in its prime. Wandering the grounds you get to step inside a bunch of different trolleys from various time periods and parts of the world. It was so informative and awesome.... More

I have been going on vacation in Southern Maine and can't believe I never knew about this place. It has tons of old trolleys in varying states of restoration. The staff and volunteers are very nice and can't wait to share their passion for trolleys. Make sure you stick around for a ride on one of the restored trams.

This is a must-see attraction for rail fans of all ages when in Southern Maine. It’s also a great place for families with young children. Founded by three local men in 1939, the Seashore Trolley Museum has grown into the largest electric railway museum in the world. It is also the oldest. The collection has 250 transit vehicles that include... More

The museum was surprisingly interesting. It was really like a trip back in time, walking through old restored trolleys from around the world, many with the original ads inside. Was impressed by the people who worked there (they are all volunteers!) and how knowledgeable and excited they were about this part of American history.

This place is like a treasure. The history alone is unbelievable. You pay one admission and you can ride the trolley all day long. The open air cars on a hot summers day as you make your way down the tracks and around the park loop and back again is a wonderful treat by itself. Afterwards you can walk around... More

Before the trolley ride, we go a map of of the property and wandered around taking pictures of the property. They have a restoration shop where they are in progress of rebuilding old trolleys, and there is another barn where there are some completely restored ones. I found it interesting that it is the oldest and largest mass transit museum... More

My girlfriend and I came to visit and was blown away by the friendly staff, history of the museum/trolley cars in New England and the amount of rolling stock there was! We got to the museum around 10:30 and was told that the next trolley would be leaving at 10:50. We had the orange "Boston Elevated" car and enjoyed our... More

Okay, I'll admit that I am sort of a train and trolley buff. We first visited here some 35 years ago when our oldest was an infant. We have been back several times since then. If you enjoy history, this museum is for you. It concentrates on transit history and it is certainly more than passive. Your ticket allows you... More
