Take a ride into the past at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum!  Imagine a Museum where visitors are actually encouraged to touch the exhibits and ride in them too! We are a lot more than a trolley ride; our museum guides will put the trolley in its historical context and explain what life was like 50-100 years ago. 

The museum was founded in 1953 and opened to the public in 1963. Its collection has grown to 50 historic trolleys including the original “Streetcar Named Desire” from New Orleans and a vintage 1911 open trolley from Rio de Janiero.  The museum is staff mostly by enthusiastic volunteers who enjoy sharing their knowledge of days gone by when the streetcar took you everywhere!

Admission includes 4-mile scenic trolley rides, exhibits, guided tour, theater, museum store and picnic area.  Free parking. Great for families and young and old alike!
