Trollys and light urban rail cars from 1870 to 1988 are on display. The tour guids are very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the light urban rail cars. There are trollys on display that have been featured in some movies. There is a short trolly ride to the County Park that is always fun. There are many seasonal... More

This was quite a charming gem of place to visit while we were staying in Washington PA for the Tanger Outlets and Meadows Racetrack and Casino. It was a close drive and worth the trip. There is a little museum with a movie and other items indoors along with a cute gift shop. You get to actually ride on a... More

This was a pleasant surprise and we enjoyed the experience because that's what it was. You actually get to ride the trolley!! It takes you to the garage that houses all the old trolleys and then to the fair grounds so you get to ride the trolley twice. There is a guided tour at the garage that is about 20... More

There are MANY trolley cars to view at this museum, and the history of their manufacture, impact on urban development, and demise is explained clearly in the tour and film at this museum. There is a long trolley ride to enjoy.

For the 4th, I thought I would take some of my grandchildren for a bit of Americana. My daughter-in-law and kids 9,4,2, and I visited. Everyone had a good time. The guide was so animated that even the 2 year old paid attention. They enjoyed the "picnic trolley" ride, with the reversible seats, with the bonus of seeing various wild... More

All the staff at this attraction are very knowledgeable and only too pleased to show me two additional areas not usually included in the admission. My tour started in the small museum and the introductory video. A guy then came in and showed me the restoration shop and offices and I met the office cat. The external ride is interesting... More

Nice trolley ride for the kids and we saw a Herron in the stream along the way and cargo trains.They stopped at a large garaged area of late model trolleys and gave a guided tour. The kids loved the bells and whistles. A short way down the interstate is a famous candy shop. ; )

We got to ride a trolley! Jon was our guide and Jim our conductor. Jon was very informative. His stories of the Pittsburgh trolleys were good.

My husband and I had a great time visiting the trolley museum. We had a 4 mile trolley ride and a tour of trolley cars. We also had the opportunity to see a car in the process of being renovated. Most of the staff are volunteers with a passion for trolleys. Everyone was very accommodating and informative. It was well... More
