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.

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.

Most of the staff are volunteers with a passion for trolleys. Everyone was very accommodating and informative. It was well... More

They have a lot of old trolleys on display and during different times of the year you can take a ride on one. Inside they have a lot of history on trolleys.

I stopped in, not knowing they would be closed on Saturdays in February. Staff went out of there way to show me around, and make it a museum to enjoy. Thanks Tim and everyone else for making it a great place to visit.
