Really cool place for a railroad or trolley buff to check out. Lots of history here. Adjacent to steam town historic site. Easy to kill two birds with one stone

The Electric City Trolley Station and Museum was a fun experience for our family. The Trolley ride was fun and educational. The price was great for a family of 5. We will be back!

Very impressed with this unique museum. Large collection of memorabilia. History of trolleys in US was very informative.... a surprising insight into this period of time.

This museum was very small and several cases were blocked by the tracks set up for the annual meet up of train hobbyists.

Great history and the exhibits including actual trains and trolleys were terrific. This is a definite if you like trains at all!

Right beside the steam train museum. Although smaller still worth stopping into to see the history. They don't get the same funding as the train museum so it's not as well displayed but very interesting.
