  • The ride goes about a dozen blocks through town as the conductor shares about the history of the fort and the city- a great history lesson for kids! The "museum" is outside with a gift shop and a frie...  more »

  • Before I go into my review, let me preface it with I understand there's not a lot of track for a trolley to traverse. But the experience could have been so much more inclusive, educational, and entert...  more »

  • The museum itself is a collection of various train cars, engines, etc. They are neat to look at, but not really my thing. The trolley ride itself was absolutely worth every penny. I'm not sure how long the route is, but our conductor was amazing. He taught us the history along the route; from the National Cemetery, to the Trail of Tears marker, to Judge Parker's hanging gallows and Miss Laura's bordello turned visitor's center. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining for the entire trolley ride. It is a lot of fun and we'll be doing it again when we're back in the area.
  • I liked it. Short, calm ride. The only thing was the trolley was breaking down and the girls in the trolley kept making rude comments to the young conductor. And also we weren't correctly informed when or where the Easter egg hunt was and walked half the way back. But I'm not complaining because the older people at the museum were trying to make the people comfortable with very limited accommodations.
  • A wonderful way to step back in time and see what it was like to ride a trolley.
  • went for the polar express. was informative to a degree and the staff helping with the lines were less than happy to be there. hopefully we just caught them on a bad night.
  • The lines were long and the Tolley ride was short but my son loves everything train!
