About Us

The mission of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is to communicate the story of Pennsylvania's trolley era to a diverse audience through the preservation, interpretation, and use of its collection of electric railway and railroad equipment, associated artifacts, and photo/document archives, and to ensure that visitors have an enjoyable and rewarding educational experience.

Through its exhibits, tours, rides, and educational programs, the museum carries out this mission by familiarizing visitors with the technology, politics, and social history of the trolley era, and by making these subjects relevant through themes ranging from the history of safety advances to the ways lessons from historic urban transportation can be applied today and in the future.
