We’ve been there several times since I work and live nearby. The trolleys people used in everyday life in the past are amazing to see. But I never experienced their Christmas Santa Trolley ride. It was so worth it. For young children that love Santa it is a must. My girls are getting older and aren’t as into it. It... More

Design and layout of the place is great. The tour and ride were great, even though it was a bit cool .

Fun to visit, fun to ride, fun to step back to a less hurried pace. Enjoy this bit of history just 30 minutes south of Pittsburgh.

wonderful for families or even for an adult by themselves. You can even take a ride on one. It is not expensive and you even have a choice to just visit the museum at no charge, but can not go onto the trolleys

My wife and I were on our way home from attending a conference and stopped for the night in Washington, PA. In the morning, we visited Pennsylvania Trolley Museum to learn about the history of streetcars and interurbans that connected towns at the start of the twentieth century. We got to experience riding a 98 year old streetcar that operated... More

This museum is dedicated to preserving the history of electric trolley's. They have a large number of trolleys with a number in working order. A visit includes a ride of about 2 miles on one of the historic trolleys. In addition there are tours available of the building where most of their trolley collection is stored. A well done short...

While looking for a break in our drive, we tried accessing this museum. Our GPS took us to where construction/renovation is occurring to perhaps their parking/entrance, so we parked in the Mall parking area. We could see through the chain link fence trains and even people, and then saw signs to drive behind mall parking, which we did. We gave... More

We take the kids every year for their Santa trolley, but they have fun events throughout the year including a ride to the pumpkin patch and I believe an Easter bunny train as well. You can ride trains and trolley cars with your admission, plus there is a large model train display and a few museum displays as well. For... More
