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

We had a great time at the museum. Staff is very friendly and have a lot of information to share with the visitors. Great to have the chance to ride those historical vehicles from the US and Canada. It would be great if they had the money to resort and maintain more of them. A lot of trains are left... More

My wife suggested to stop here was a bit reluctant but she was right; well worth the time to see. Some dedicated and very knowledgeable staff who give a great tour on a restored trolley. Take some time to walk the grounds; they have so many trolleys, subway cars, busses and other pieces; many more than they have finding to... More

Fair admission prices - clean - interesting and preserving a piece of America's history! Think I may have been on one of those NY cars at one time and our 3-yr-old grandson had a great time climbing on the others! Husband admired the craftsmanship of those who were refurbishing! Worth seeing and supporting!

Take the 45 tour with the knowledgable and likeable Ed. Great way to see important landmarks and you can hop on and off at any stop all day.

We read about this museum in our AAA travel guide and decided to give it a shot. After purchasing the entry ticket ( $8.00 for seniors ) you go out to the depot and either wait for the next trolley or wander around checking out everything close by. And there is a lot of everything. Trolleys, buses and so much... More

This was one museum that our toddler and we liked as well. The trolley ride was fun and the operators were so informative about the height of trolley use in history. The mechanic in the workshop where you could watch them restoring cars was knowledgeable and answered every question. Walking through the old trolleys was really fun. The inside museum... More

I didn't have very high expectations, but wanted to try something different. The displays in the main building are rather pedestrian (sorry, no pun intended). However, once I left the main building my interest picked up a lot. We actually took a several mile trip on one of the old trolley cars, as the conductor explained about how trolleys worked.... More

THis is a real treasure. Very inexpensive admission and lots to see. It includes a guided ride on an authentic old trolley car, tour of the various buildings that are used to store and restore the trains, trolleys and buses from various places in the US and the world. We were treated to a wonderful conversation with one of the... More
