Pennsylvania Trolley Museum

Pennsylvania Trolley Museum

Opened to the public in 1963, the museum was established by people who twenty years earlier began to fear that America's streetcars would soon be lost to the annals of history. They began acquiring decomissioned trolleys and compiling information and artifacts relating. Today, visitors can tour the Trolley Display Building and see trolleys from different eras as well as take a 4-mile scenic, authentic trolley ride.

We hope you enjoy our work.
