If you are interested in trolleys this is a must see. There is a fun trolley ride, gift ship and interesting exhibits. Great insight into a past era, and transportation technology. Fun for kids, they may help drive.

Great!! What a nice time. It was very interesting and informative. I never thought a trolley would be that fun. Kids will love the ride. My 8 year old was thrilled.

This is one place I will definitely return to. If I had of known it was this good, I would have planned more time. So much to see. The staff onsite were very pleasant. The trolley ride was fun. The day I arrived, I only had time to take one trolley, but they had 3 running that day. Will return... More

This is one place I make a point of visiting every few years. I have always had a casual passion for railroading and the Seashore Trolley Museum fits right in. My wife and I started coming to the trolley museum when our children were young and have continued with our grandchildren as well as foster children we've had through the... More

This museum is a look back at history. There are many old trolleys and buses on display/ The trolley ride was a fun experience. We had a 90 year old on our trolley and he wanted to see the Liberty Bell Trolley which he rode when we was in the Navy. The museum staff was very accommodating and it was... More

This was a fun place to visit and see several historical trains and trolleys from around the world. We took a ride on an open air trolley and were given a narrative of the area and history of the tracks and trains that ran back in the day. Once off the trolley you can walk to various covered warehouses and... More

I took my oldest daughter. We had a fun day, but both agreed, this was a one-time deal. I'd recommend you not miss it, but no need to plan two trips.

For an inexpensive hour and a half you can't beat the Trolley Museum. If your kids have never seen a trolley or know about their contribution to the growth of metropolitan areas in the first half of the 20th century (and most don't), it is a worthwhile experience. Explore the trolley barn where you can board old trollies from the... More

This has got to be heaven for anyone with an interest in public transportation (it was for us). The trolley ride is great and I believe they have a few different trolleys running- a ticket includes unlimited rides throughout the day. There are a lot of volunteers who are knowledgeable and eager to teach about the various vehicles and their... More

Sooo glad you visited! This is certainly the place for transit fans! I hope you can come back on Transit Day - Oct 8, 2016 - when buses, subway cars and trackless trolleys will run - as well as our streetcars! More
