  • I enjoyed the trolley museum way more than I expected. I got to ride on several trolleys while touring their facility. And their collection is impressive. I’m guessing at least 30 trolleys and other a...  more »

  • What the Pennsylvannia Trolley Museum is doing is awesome and the trolley ride was fun along with the short viewing of many different types of trolleys in their trolley barn. It is definitely worth a ...  more »

  • We had so much fun! The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. When you first get there, you purchase your tickets in the gift shop (which are good all day). Then you walk out to the platform. There are 2 different Trolley rides. The first Trolley is an old time passenger car with windows. That one takes you for a 15 min ride around and back to the station. The other Trolley is an open car with no doors. That one takes you to the museum. There are lots of old cars starting with the very first cars. It was really neat to learn about them and how they progressed over time. My 4 year old had a great time too. I would definitely recommend.
  • If you like trolleys, this is the place for you. We went on a day when Daniel Tiger was visiting. There was a surprising amount of stuff out for kids to do - but I don't know if it is all out on an average day. There's nothing overly fancy here, but riding the trolley was fun. The kids enjoyed it.
  • We have 2 young boys that love trains, this was a surprisingly enjoyable experience. Fascinating to sit and talk with the volunteers that are here. Working trolley lines, and we rode on the Streetcar Named Desire. The kids love it. We try to stop out during the holidays because they always have something fun going on like the pumpkin patch. This is definitely a destination place if your kids like trains or if you love the history of the trolleys!
  • My little girl and I loved this place. They have a trolley Mister Rogers himself once rode on, dozens of historical trolleys and the trolley ride includes two beautiful and different ones with antique ads inside and wonderful views of the area. The gift shop had items for every age group and there was a lovely informative video and toddler-friendly activities while we waited for the ride and tour to start. The conductors were very understanding of three-year-olds and there was a smaller trolley with a bell which my daughter simply adored. We both learned a lot and it was very special for my daughter, a devout fan of 'Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood,' and a third-generation fan of Mister Rogers, to finally experience real trolleys. She has talked of little else since our visit and even though we live far away in Virginia, I can hardly wait to bring her back with her Dad.
  • Didn't think this place would be that good but I was wrong it was wonderful. Lots of old and historical trolleys. Dedicated and knowledgeable staff. We got to ride two different trolleys on their amazing little railway.
