We enjoy the trolley ride and a place to go when it's not a beach day. The gift shop is great for buying things for the grand kids.

Visit this interesting old trolley museum and enjoy a ride out into the "wilderness" aboard a car from some city line of a bygone era. This will bring back memories of the old days for people who "remember when" and given the younger ones a taste of what mode of transportation used to crisscross most of the cities in the... More

This place in the woods is a real find. The trolley ride out an back for two miles takes one back to a very long t time ago when trolleys traveled city streets and between Maine costal towns so that mill workers could get to the beaches on the weekends and holidays. And they have a "penny flattening" machine.

What a fabulous way to kick off the Prelude celebration. The people are fantastic and so enthusiastic about the trolley cars. I learned so much while having fun singing carols and meeting new people from here and away!

What a wonderful activity. A ride upon the chariot while enjoying the great outdoors. To top it off food and (2) beverages for everyone included in the price of your ticket. The people of the Trolley museum are fun and engaging.. a new holiday tradition.

I bought a $25 ticket to go on the Golden Chariot Ride on Dec 2nd for Christmas Prelude. They made the description sound so great and said cocktails and horderves were included in the price of the ticket. Cheap horderves and cocktails. The worst part was the chariot ride. It was so dark you couldn't see a thing. There were... More

A nice little ride on the trolley - complete with bells and whistles - and a stroll thru the workshops to see the restored cars

Such enthusiastic and informative people work here. And such beautiful restorations of the trolley cars. I learned about trolley cars and urban development too; who knew trolleys transformed cities so much? A well-stocked store for the enthusiast and the general visitor. We had a good length trolley ride. All kinds of transit memorabilia/ work in progress to see on site... More
