It was fun.

I'm glad I never had to take a trolley when I was young. Very interesting, and enjoyable. Pretty simple, probably not for little kids. Pay for the extra behind the scenes tour.

This is a well maintained and run Trolley Museum. The grounds are neat and organized. I'm very interested in railroads and Trolley (electrics) aren't a specific interest, but still usually worth a trip, however, this museum has plenty for the non-trolley rail fans. There are three diesel "critters" (small locomotives) on site, the oldest is an ultra rare 1930 Baldwin-Westinghouse... More

The trolley museum in Washington, PA is a great place to learn about the trolley and the impact it had on American society. There is a small museum where you can read and watch a short movie about the history of the trolley. The featured attraction is a guided trolley ride around the grounds with a stop at the trolley...

Dozens of trolley cars, some refurbished beautifully, many in varying states of repair, are on display at the Trolley Museum in Washington, Pennsylvania. Visitors can enter several warehouse sized museums with cars to view. Volunteer guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and anxious to tell visitors about the history and development of trolley car (not to be confused with cable cars) across... More

I have been to the Trolley Museum several times, usually with my son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. There is a Pumpkin Patch trolley, Santa trolley, Easter Bunny trolley, Antique Tractors, etc. It's a great time for young and old alike. Not only do you get a fun trolley to the museum, there are model trains to see and a wonderful... More

Went with a group of 50+ adults. The place is staffed by volunteers who truly love their trolleys. We got there half an hour before closing. They gave us the full tour, a delightful ride, patiently answered all our questions as they lead us (in smaller groups) among the many trolley cars being refurbished, and kept the gift shop open....

Me and my BFF GF. Went here. Because, we couldn't go to the Pitt zoo as we planned. Because, it was raining that day. And even though we wanted to go to the zoo. We couldn't. Because, it was down pouring that day. So, we had to find something else to do that day then going to the zoo. This... More

Takes you back to the days of the streetcars. Those of you who never had the experience to ride in a street car, now you can experience. It is not a very long ride but my grandkids thought it was a fun outing
