This was not my first time visiting the Baltimore Street Car Museum, but it was one of the best. In a lost corner of Baltimore's industrial past sits the museum and its collection of Streetcars and memorabilia. I would admit I love to travel on steel wheels on steel rails but even those who don't will enjoy the visit. Riding... More

There isn't much to the "museum", the only attraction here is to ride on vintage streetcars. They have some very old cars - from 100 years ago - and others from mid-twentieth century. The staff of volunteers are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The admission is fairly low, so if you are a transportation buff or looking for a fun activity... More

Almost by accident I went there and I was surprised not only the collection but also the passion of the volunteers who keep this reality in life even though they are - of course - not in service. It makes us take a step back 70 years (and if you want even more) in which the people were happy that... More

This modest but lovely museum is open on Sundays year round and seasonally on Saturdays. It is a fun little place especially because you can take a ride on the trolleys outside. The volunteers that staff the place are clearly passionate about what they do and could answer all my questions and give a very interesting and informative tour. There... More

The museum is not the easiest place to find, but it is worth the effort. We arrived on a Saturday morning in November to discover that the museum is not open on Saturday mornings in November (should have checked...) but then a 1900s streetcar trundled into view. Upon discovering that we had come all the way from England and that... More

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
