It's Pumpkin Patch Time

And we’re happy to welcome you back!  This year, The Shore Line Trolley Museum will be following Covid-19 protocols.  We’ll be offering rides every hour to the Pumpkin Patch.  Kids can still pick their own sugar pumpkin at  our outdoor patch.  Take a self guided tour of our decorated trolley barns.  Each child receives a take-away puzzle book.  D&S Hotdogs will be on the museum grounds, too!

The Patch is open from 11am – 4pm Saturdays and Sundays from October 3 thru        November 1.  Limit 25 per hour, tickets are available online.  Your admission includes a trolley ride, grounds visit, one pumpkin and puzzle book for each child.  And don’t forget, plenty of photo ops!!   Please read our Covid-19 protocols below.

Groups of 10 or more can request their own special weekday visit!  Please contact the museum at reservations@shorelinetrolley.org or call 203-467-6927 for special times and rates.

Our first priority is the well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff. By purchasing your tickets, you accept and agree to adhere to our re-opening policies listed below. Tickets are available online only. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled visit time. Your admission includes one trolley ride and a self-guided trolley barn tour.
