There is SO much history to be discovered in Fort Smith, and one of those places that helps you discover it is the Fort Smith Trolley Museum
This charming museum is dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of the region's transportation heritage, from the electric powered streetcars to the railroad, and other technology that existed throughout history, offering providing a unique educational experience to the visiting public (that's you!)
Since the Fort Smith Trolley Museum was founded, they have been continuously adding to their collection of real life vintage equipment, and there is SO much to see!
They have electric streetcars, as well as other railroad cars.There are freight cars, and locomotives, and even the work equipment needed to restore and upkeep such items. Within the collection there are even motor buses from around the 1940s period too.
Kids won't just be looking at photographs, they ill be looking at the real cars, and trains, and carriages first hand. For any child that just LOVES trains or machinery, you might just have to put the Fort Smith Trolley Museum on your list!
Keep an eye out also for fun events that the museum hosts throughout the year, including the antique tractor show.
