Museum Open, Trolleys Running 11AM-3PM. Trolleys leave every hour.
May 30 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday, repeating until August 29, 2021
Spend an hour, spend the day. The museum is open to walk-in visitors for trolley rides and tours. Our hours are 11AM-3PM with trolley cars leaving every hour. Our volunteer trolley operators will take you on a journey back in time on the oldest suburban street railway in the U.S.A. You’ll ride on the remaining 1.5 miles of the Connecticut Company trolley line, a National Historic District. Opening on July 31, 1900, this line connected the city of New Haven with the Connecticut shore line.
Your visit includes a ride on an authentic antique trolley car. Step into a portrait of old New Haven on an old ConnCo trolley. Or maybe today is the day you’ll visit New Orleans on a 1923 New Orleans Public Transit trolley. Depending on weather, a semi-open 1904 Brooklyn Rapid Transit trolley may be your chariot. We also regularly operate trolley cars from New Orleans and Johnstown PA.
Get a glimpse of history when you view our meticulously volunteer-restored display cars. You might even see some volunteers working on overhead wire, signals or even track! Speaking of which, we are always looking for volunteers and there are many opportunities available. Ask your tour guide or ticket agent for more information.
Perhaps a membership is for you. If you visit multiple times a year, check out the advantages of an annual member subscription.
Don’t leave without taking away a memento from your visit. Stop at our museum store and look around.
Your tickets are good all day, so relax and enjoy! Tickets are $10/adult, $8/folks 62+, $7/children and kids under 2 ride free! Bring your AAA, Big Y, or educators ID and get $1 off each admission. Please note that special events may be priced differently.
