Wonderful small street car Museum

Great inside tour of the streetcar along with many old pictures and items located downtown. Check on hours and days that it is open.

Came to Lowell on a day off to check out their Streetcar Museum. Even though the museum was closed, they were running their open air street cars, which was great.

Very small, good for children under 10, lots of information for adults about transportation in Lowell MA but be ready to read. Small fee, some might feel it is not worth it though.

I love rail travel and was hoping for something a little more here. The place was OK, but a tad of a disappointment to Baltimore's Streetcar Museum.
