A small but informative museum. Inside are a number of photos depicting the history of the Baltimore streetcars along with displays and artifacts. Also a gift shop with interesting books devoted to ....yep, streetcars. Outside exhibits include a few streetcars in various states of preservation. There is an "out and back" dog bone shaped track that is maybe 1/2 mile... More

Best for kids, especially if they have never ridden a troll;ey. Ride could be longer, but it is still fun. The volunteer attendants love kid's questions to show their smarts.

This museum is was only open on Sundays so I took my 8 year old son and his friend for what I thought would be the afternoon. The staff are volunteers and very gracious, friendly and helpful. It really is only 2 rooms of photo graphs from when streetcars where popular in Baltimore, They must cycle the trolleys they own... More

The museum has a great deal - unlimited streetcar rides. They run a car every 15 minutes. I brought the kids there when they opened. I had to pry the kids away at 4:00! Even more amazing, you got to ride on a streetcar more than 100 years old! Most museums put something like that behind glass or a rope.... More

The museum was part of a group mystery trip to Baltimore and a favorite of the group. The museum is tucked away on a back road and out of the way but if you have the time, check it out. The museum itself is not much but the rides on the old streetcars are worth the trip. It's a short... More

This was not my first time visiting the Baltimore Street Car Museum, but it was one of the best. In a lost corner of Baltimore's industrial past sits the museum and its collection of Streetcars and memorabilia. I would admit I love to travel on steel wheels on steel rails but even those who don't will enjoy the visit. Riding... More

There isn't much to the "museum", the only attraction here is to ride on vintage streetcars. They have some very old cars - from 100 years ago - and others from mid-twentieth century. The staff of volunteers are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The admission is fairly low, so if you are a transportation buff or looking for a fun activity... More

Almost by accident I went there and I was surprised not only the collection but also the passion of the volunteers who keep this reality in life even though they are - of course - not in service. It makes us take a step back 70 years (and if you want even more) in which the people were happy that... More

This modest but lovely museum is open on Sundays year round and seasonally on Saturdays. It is a fun little place especially because you can take a ride on the trolleys outside. The volunteers that staff the place are clearly passionate about what they do and could answer all my questions and give a very interesting and informative tour. There... More
