About Us

As the first and largest Electric Railway Museum in the world, our guests learn about and gain a new appreciation for the role public transportation has played throughout history.

Take a ride on our heritage railroad in a vintage trolley from the early 1900s. Explore three carhouses filled with beautiful, restored trolleys and several other precious transit artifacts around our outdoor campus. Our world-renowned collection includes vehicles from almost every major city in the United States that had streetcar systems, as well as from across the world. From the omnibus, to electric streetcars, buses, light rail vehicles, and rapid transit cars, we’ve got them all.

Dog Friendly and accessible to hiking and biking trails, we're open weekends in May and December, and Wednesday-Sunday from June 1-Halloween from 9:30AM-4:30PM. Please visit our website prior to visiting:
