We were the first visitors to arrive for the day and ended up receiving a personal tour of the trolley exhibit by "an old timer" who pretty much knew everything there was to know about trolleys. The museum features an excellent short film, some exhibits, and a second building that contains many, many trolley cars for viewing. Additionally, the trolley... More

Our driver and guide was retired from a local transit company and knew the history of the local trolley industry. The visit includes about a 30 minute ride in the trolley through the local area, and a guided tour of about an hour through the large garage of trolley displays. Very nice exhibit area, there seemed to be more to... More

Stopped by for a visit after hearing about the place online. The volunteers are friendly and show that they have taken the time to learn about trolley history. The ride on the 1911 trolley car was fun. The hangar where many other cars are kept is fascinating but also a little sad; you can stand at each car and its... More

We went here in August or Sept 2015 and it is a very nice place to visit. It's very informative and we really enjoyed the trolley ride and we also got the extra ticket where we got to see all the trains in the museum which was worth the extra money.

Remember taking the old trolley as a kid. Enjoyed seeing them again. Very informative. Even got to sit in one again and ring the bell.

Unfortunately this museum was closed when we found it. It is a way off from I70 but looks to be worth the drive. We talked to someone who said they have over 50 trolleys and those that we could see looked great. We will try to visit sometime in the future

Great place to stop and spend a few hours learning about transportation history. Get to see behind the scene as well as riding on antiques trolley cars. Take the time to stop and visit well worth the time.

We only live a few miles away from this museum, it's a gem in this county, for sure. They put on a car show every year, and we like to take our sons to that. (You'll find the info on their website.) Classic and vintage cars, music, food, and unlimited trolley rides! It's always a fun day! The open air... More
