Summer Activities at the Trolley Museum

Join us for summer fun at the Trolley Museum!

Summertime is the best time to visit the Trolley Museum, visit once or all summer long! The Connecticut Trolley Museum will hold activities for all ages! Let us help you make memories that will last a lifetime!

Activities All Summer Long

Trolley Rides • Take a trolley ride operated by period dressed motormen on a trolley car dating back to the early 1900's. Learn historic information about the collection and how the Museum began.

Trolley Experiences • Get up close and personal as you climb aboard selected trolleys from the Museum's incredible collection in the Visitors Center. From city streetcars to interurban cars this is your chance to take the controllers and let your imagination "operate".

Crafting Station • Make a Motorman Hat and create your own trolley fare ticket. Take your new creations home with you for future use.

Dress-up Station • Dress up as a Motorman or Conductor! Great Photo op!

Fire Truck Museum • View over 15 fire rrucks dating back to 1923. Learn more about the Fire Truck Museum's collection along with historic fire fighting equipment. Admission to Fire Truck Museum is included in the Trolley Museum admission ticket!

Storytime Trolley
