Let the artifacts do the storytelling as a representative showcases a few remarkable relics from the museum’s rich collection.

ABOUT THE PA TROLLEY MUSEUM:
The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum came to Washington County in February 1954 with three trolleys and a dream that was born in 1941. Today, the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum owns nearly 50 street and electric railway cars, 20 of which are operational on the museum’s four-mile ride. Each year over 30,000 visitors are treated to a hands-on, moving history lesson.
