“Learned a lot and even took a ride on a Trolley!”

The Electric City Trolley Station and Museum
Ranked #2 of 35 things to do in Scranton

Attraction details

If you plan it right you can take a ride on an old school electric trolley from downtown Scranton to Lackawanna County Stadium and see The Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees play! How cool. I think it was like $5/pp and the ride was really cool. The museum itself just underwent some extensive renovations and is in great shape and has a lot to offer.

It is adjacent to Steamtown and should be seen. Nice display and explains the history of the trolley in our past.

Went with a museum day trip group senior adults. The trolley station is a new well appointed building. There is a film and a spirited docent dressed as a conductor. The trolleys are beautifully restored. There is a narrated trolley ride regularly offered to Scrantons new baseball stadium. The ride passes over a magnificant river run. We had lunch at the historic Lackawanna station downtown that is now a hotel. Phoebe Snow the famous ad for the line was reincarnated to talk about her life and history along with a simi vaudeville act. The food was on time and good as was the service. Best carrot cake I ever ate. We understand the singer Phoebe Snow took her name from the train ad..

The Trolley ride is a must! The museum is also great, but don't skip the trolley ride! The price is worth it!

Our boys love trains, so we visited several train museums on our vacation. We visited the train museum there in Scranton and the trolley museum was right next door. We did not purchase a trolley ride. I'm sure it would have been great. But it cost too much to visit this tiny museum for less than an hour. It was $20 for a family of 4 -The train museum was elaborate, we spent several hours there -- we only had to pay for 2 adults and the children were free. I was disappointed in the trolley museum as to how small it was for the price.
