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.

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.
