  • I had a great experience there. There would be three trolleys running on three miles of track. There would be only one track the most of the way. The admission isn't bad considering you would get to freely walk around the grounds and get unlimited rides on the trolleys. Inside the main building, there are several trolleys inside for display. A few of is accessible to the public. Behind the main building, there is the Kelly Barn and the Connecticut Fire Museum. The barn is simply where the trolleys are kept. In the fire museum, there are many fire trucks and several buses. Overall, the volunteers who worked at this museum did a good job at building, maintaining and everything else that goes into this museum. As their motto goes: Volunteers are not paid because they are worthless; but because they are priceless.
  • Tooked our children here when they were little some years ago. We all liked it. Enjoyed the train ride and looking at the trains.
  • Wonderful museum for rail fans. Also has working Trolleys you can ride in the warm weather months. A bonus is the associated fire museum with several local retired fire engines.
  • We would come here just for the Christmas trolley ride, but now get the yearly memberahip. Great place for families and very economical.
  • Neat place to take the kids. Brings back memories
