I visited the Baltimore Streetcar Museum on a Sunday afternoon with my toddler. It is operated by all volunteers, so the hours are limited. I believe they are open every Sunday and on Saturdays during the warmer months. There is a small indoor exhibition area and gift shop, but the the real appeal is in several antique original streetcars. The... More

An all volunteer run museum. They were wonderful. On the day we went, 4 historic trolleys were running. The volunteers had done most of the restoration work. Get the membership! $50/year for a family of 4 for unlimited visits. A great way to support this well run museum.

Having arrived just after a trolley ride had left, I was left hanging about for ages waiting for the next one and no one seemed particularly interested in making any effort to get another one going. The museum has very little of interest and the ride is alongside a road into an industrial area. Very disappointing.

One of our favorite family activities in all of Baltimore is a weekend visit to the Streetcar Museum. Unlike most transportation museums that allow you to look at a few stationary machines and a lot of photos, the Baltimore Streetcar Museum affords you the opportunity to actually ride these wonderfully restored treasures of charm city. The museum is only opening... More

The Baltimore Streetcar Museum presents visitors with a glimpse into what transportation was like in Baltimore during the hey-day of the streetcar, back in the early 1900s, with the last one taken off the lines in the mid-1960s. These vehicles were the main way to get around the city and the suburbs of Baltimore back then. The museum itself is... More

A great afternoon trip into the early 20th century for transportation and Baltimore history buffs alike. This is the only museum collection in the country for streetcars from the local area. All the cars were used in Baltimore at one time, and have been restored by volunteers to their original appearance. The collection ranges from early horse-drawn cars all the... More

This place is run by volunteers who love what they do...restore and run vintage streetcars. It is well worth the visit, especially if you are old enough to have ridden one in your younger years and want to share the experience with the younger generation, There is a nice collection of photographs of days gone by . The staff of... More

This museum is run purely by volunteers and donations. They have done an excellent job restoring the street cars ( which visitors get to ride) and the portrayal of the ride as the period the car was from was so fun. We also enjoyed the pictures and exhibits between rides. This was our favorite activity in Baltimore this trip; it... More

We visited there in April, 2013 and had a wonderful experience. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, and answered all my questions. We rode 4 different cars, one of them fresh out of the restoration shop. In the museum gallery, i was surprised at the large number of period photographs, each with a very detailed description. We spent 2... More

My Husband is a die hard Street Car guy, we have visited this museum on several occasions and highly recommend. Each time the volunteers and car collection never disappoint. We always have loads of fun riding and photographing their street car collection. The ride is fairly short but the diverse street car collection makes up for that. The volunteers are... More
