The Connecticut Trolley Museum invites you to take a journey back in time and experience the transportation of yesterday. The museum features a variety of streetcars from the 1890s to 1950s, many of which are available for rides. At the Connecticut Trolley Museum, we provide a historically accurate educational experience through the interpretation, preservation, restoration and operation of an electric railway. Come visit our exhibit in the Display Hall of the Visitor Center. It takes you on a journey of how the electric trolley evolved from the horsecar to the PCC. Also, learn how society was impacted by amusement parks (trolley parks), streetcar suburbs, and the growth of mill towns.
