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

We visited with our son & 2 young grandkids. There was mostly families with young kids. They trolley ride is fun. But when you get off to look at the trolleys, we wish that they gave you a few minutes to look around yourself. Not just having the conductor tell you about a few of the trolleys. There was so...

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is a fascinating place to spend a few hours. The ride on the trolley is fun for the whole family, there is a lot of historical information in the education building, and the collection of different trolley cars is first rate. The people who talk to you are very knowledgeable and they are the ones who... More

Brilliant! Informative and the trip on the trolley car took us back to our childhood. Fascinating to see the impact and change it made on society and the way we lived. The people at the museum have a real passion for their subject without making it boring or too intense. So glad we found it.

This place is a lot of fun - they run trolleys all day, with departures every 20 minutes. Your ticket is good all day, so you can ride as many times as you want. The museum with their collection of old trolley cars is very interesting.

Great place to spend 3+ hours without breaking the bank ! Huge, much larger than I ever expected Trolley Museum that you ride a ......trolley....to get to. Very nice guides available to explain the various trolleys. Children (and adults) are able to climb on many of the museum trolleys. After that, it's a trolley ride thru the countryside for a...

We were looking for something to do on our way to Pittsburgh & found this museum. Got to ride an actual trolley from days gone by & hear a lot of interesting stories for a very knowledgeable volunteer. They have an outstanding collection of trolleys from different time periods & the stories behind them were fun as well as educational.... More
