I always enjoy my visits here from England- we found the attraction quite by chance when we first stayed at The Beach House back in 1993 - our first ever visit to Maine. It was great to be back there in June 2016,to stay once more at The Beach House and ride the superbly restored trolleys at Seashore. There was... More

Went with friends and were pleasantly surprised. Took a very informative ride on the trolley. The conductor was full of good information done with a nice touch of humor. The museum itself was well done and very educational. Would definitely recommend a stop here.

We drove to the trolley museum based on the description (and my love of trains). We were not disappointed!! We were both impressed with how big this place was, acres of old trolleys, some in the process of being restored, some ready to go! The ride on an old trolley was well worth it, if I recall it was over... More

If you go to KBP go here. On my 3 day trip this was the highlight! You can spend a couple of hours there exploring a great museum and get to go on a trolley ride that must last 30 min. The conductor and driver give lots of info and will answer any questions. Nice gift shop. If you love... More

There are dozens of trolleys at this exhibit - of which a few are actually running. It will take several lifetimes to get all of the trolleys running again. Most of the workers at the museum are volunteers and put in alot of time into what they do (but they really enjoy it). Bring your camera! The restoration building and... More

This museum is an excellent place for a visit. There is a restoration shop with a viewing platform where you can watch people at work restoring trolleys. There are barns full of already-restored cars to look at and climb on. The old advertisements on these cars are hilarious to read, so even if you think you've taken your kids to... More

Walking into the welcoming Museum entrance was like a wonderful step back in time. The various items on display and information boards are beautifully set up and filled with information for young and old. The volunteer staff share their extensive knowledge with a joy that reflects their love of the history, craftsmanship, technology and beauty of the trolleys. Over 150... More

We met some railfans and learned so much about this fascinating history through their passion for trolleys, streetcars, and subways.

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.
