My frist trip here was around 1977, and I've been hooked ever since, having been here at least four times since then. I've always loved Trolley's, espically the older ones.. After my visit here, my love for them shot through the roof! The have a huge ecletic collection of them from all over the world, including several from New England and the good ol' MBTA.
The place gives you a great "historical" feel and great way to go back in time. I had a blast climbing up on and exploring just about every one they had on display.
I think the people who rated this one or two stars, are people that just don't "get it". If you come from an older city, like Boston, New York, and most larger east-coast cities, you have a sense of conection with the past and history and this museum takes you back there on a Trolley ride.
Another great thing, especially for families, is that their refreshment stands don't take gouge you out of your money with ridiculous meal prices. They are very reasonable and a family of four can get a really nice lunch, including beverages, for $20-$25.00.
It's also a great place to just walk around and explore. And whatever you do, don't miss out of the fabulous Trolley rides.
