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!

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.

This is a interesting, but small museum. Still in development, the museum is housed in the upper floor of a car maintenance building and shows a lot of promise. They also operate a historic trolley service that runs along the Kingston waterfront during the weekends.

Wander through the Trolley Museum (really a yard that has old trolleys, subway cars and street cars), and it will take you back in time. I remember the old subway cars and trolley cars displayed from growing up in Brooklyn, NY. A short walk from...More

The trolley tour makes the museum, although the film is also excellent, and really shows what life was like during the heyday of trolleys! The Trolley Barn, downstairs, is also interesting, but not much explanation is given there. The trolley driver (Kenny) was very knowledgeable...More

I was visiting another museum along Kingston's waterfront when I heard that the trolley was running. I went to the museum and fond out the scoop. At noon sharp the diesel powered trolley departed the barn and ambled along its one hour route. It is...More

This is a wonderful little exhibit in the restaurant section of the Rondout area. We have been in the area, but had only seen the trolley running. Never knew about the museum until we picked out a rack card. This is an ongoing labor of...More
