Our cruise boat spent the better part of a day in Kingston, and I wanted to go to the Trolley Museum. The unfortunate part is that it is open only on holidays and weekends. I understand that is when more people can visit, but for...More

I was by the trolley museum in December. They have a good selection of cars in their yard. The trolley ride is fun and it's a good place to visit. They really need to electrify the trolley though to receive top grades. However, I recommend...More

Small museum that shows the history of trolley car use. You get to travel on a fully restored trolley thru the old section of Kingston waterfront.

Lots of interesting stuff for baby boomers. Museum includes a trolly ride with scenic views. Static display of a 911 PATH train. Have window into shop and an interesting gift shop. Old advertising signs in trolly. Museum is small with a friendly staff

Only opened on weekends like the rest of Kingston. Very disappointing. This town is not open for business most of the week which is when we traveled here. This museum was one of the main reasons we came. Such a disappointment!

Very much enjoyed the museum and trolley ride. Although small, the museum housed lots of memorabilia, historical photos, and a small gift shop. The trolley ride was exciting - views of the river, lighthouse, and countryside along the way. It would have been excellent with...More

The visit takes a little effort to get to but well worth it. The collection also includes NYC subway cars. Brings back lots of memories. Staff helped make it a great visit.
