    Need at least a half-a-day to explore.Take the trolley ride out and back into the woods.The extensive ‘gift shop’ is like NOTHING you’ve ever seen and takes you back to a bygone era when trolleys WERE the public transportation, and nearly every major city had one.The out-buildings are packed full, but may not appeal to little ones.But – there is a playroom in the central building JUST for the kids.Small fee. Clean. Safe. Good to over-cast (non-beach) days.

    I took my grandchildren–ages 4 and 5–to the Seashore Trolley Museum last summer, and what a wonderful experience it was! We all loved riding through the countryside on the restored cars; the open-sided one was their favorite. One highlight for them was being able to ring the trolley bell. They were fascinated by all the signs and signals along the route, listened with interest to the motorman’s history of the cars and the line, and had a great time exploring in the “hands-on” room. The gift shop had several reasonably-priced souvenir items. We brought our lunch, and ate it in the sunshine at one of the outdoor picnic tables. The cost for all this?: $8 for me as a senior, free for the kids as they were both under age 6. What a bargain for an afternoon of fun.Special note here: All the volunteer staff were really good, but highest praise to motorman Andy Garabedian. He was so friendly and funny that the kids still talk about him almost a year later. They prize a photograph that I took of them with him, and he took a beautiful picture of the kids and I on the trolley–so nice that their parents had it framed for me as a Christmas gift. Thanks, Andy!

    74 years in the making, it places a slice of history out in the woods of Kennebunkport, ME. Good people are there, and it gives an honest depiction of a time when seashore trolleys were the way to get to work or to fun. Note: without trolleys you wouldn’t have suburbs!

    I was in the boston area with some friends looking for museums and breweries. I found the trolley museum, and someone had given it a poor review calling it a “scrap yard disguised as a museum”. Naturally we had to hit it up. We ended up spending 5 hours there looking at tons of cool vehicles and trolleys, riding the restored 1895 and 1965 trolleys, and checking out what they were working on in the restoration shop. Well worth a visit.

    I haven’t been in over 10 years so my rating is based on my memory of the place.
