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

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

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.
