The Electric City Trolley Station and Museum, Scranton
(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
The Electric City Trolley Museum is located in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania, next to the Steamtown National Historic Site.The museum displays and operates restored trolleys and interurbans on former lines of the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley Railroad, now owned by the government of Lackawanna County and operated by the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad.In 2006, the museum opened a 2,000-foot extension connecting the county's trolley line from the Steamtown National Historic Site to a new station and trolley restoration facility next to PNC Field in Moosic, Pennsylvania. The trip, including a long tunnel, replicates a typical 1920's interurban ride. The new tracks and trolley barn are part of a $2 million project financed by capital funds from the county and the state. The barn has space for up to nine trolleys, allowing the county museum to spend more time working to bring defunct cars back to running order. It has a gallery where visitors can observe the repairs.ManagementThe Electric City Trolley Museum is owned by the Electric City Trolley Museum Association.

  • A very interesting museum. Lots of things to do for young children. Well worth the money. Make sure you visit Steamtown too. 
  • Great 10 mile round trip - very informative too - nice scenery, a bit of city, suburbs and the woods - we all had such fun! 
  • More things for kids to do, and the hour train ride leaves the yard, and goes through a pretty wooded area.
