We were on our way from Portland to Portsmouth on the back roads and happened on this museum. It was so interesting to see all the old electric trolleys, street cars and even a double decker from England. There is a 40 minute open car trolley ride on the property and tour of a restoration garage. Well worth the cost... More

We took three children to the museum. Fun adventure for them. Trolley ride was 45 minutes with explanations and answering lots of questions. They have a large lot with ample parking. Many train and subway cars in addition to the working trolleys. Seems to be a labor of love for the guides.

Took a group tour to this museum. It is run by volunteers. We rode on a restored open air trolley, and toured restored train cars. Their gift shop is very reasonably priced.

Most of the individuals taking the time to give tours & trolley rides were volunteers who were very knowledgeable and helpful. The trolley ride injected some questions, answers, and humor while educating one of the railway history. The museum consisted of buses, trains, and trolleys from various transit system throughout the country from various time frames, but also included some... More

It is a small fee but it is very informational. The trolley drive was great and gave out info on the different stops. Strongly suggest taking this.

If you have any interest at all in trolley cars this museum is a must-see. They have trolleys from all over the U.S. and the world including Japan, Australia, and the UK, going back all the way to the early 1800s! Some are in restoration while some look brand new. Amazing. Our grandson loved the open-air trolley ride and climbing... More

Thanks for the great review! Because we are open rain or shine, many visitors also find that we're a good place to come if the weather isn't nice enough to go to the beach! More

Gret spot for the whole family to enjoy ! Grandparents to little ones. Very committed volunteers who are willing to share their stories and knowledge. Beautifully restored trains. The entrance does not do the museum justice, hopefully there can be some attention made to the front to attract more visitors to this unique treasure.

My husband is a train enthusiast and I myself find them (especially older ones) fascinating, this was our spot. Getting see the old T (grew up in MA riding the T) cars & with their original ads (watch Bruins hockey on TV38!) we were brought back to our childhood. They also have cars that go even further back & from... More

Heard from my parents and grandparents how they did not have cars and had to take the trolley. A great experience to ride a trolley myself. The volunteers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about preserving this piece of history. Definitely glad we made the visit to the trolley museum.
