About Pennsylvania Trolley Museum


1 Museum Road, Washington, PA 15301, US

Mission Statement

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum's mission 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 its visitors have an enjoyable and rewarding educational experience.


The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum has evolved over the past 50 years from a handful of volunteers and a few trolleys to over 600 members and approximately 50 trolleys preserved at its museum in Washington, Pennsylvania. Visitors get a unique opportunity to actually experience the Trolley Era first hand by riding the Museum's beautifully restored streetcars for a scenic four-mile ride. The museum is also on track to build a new integrated, immersive complex that will significantly expand our education programs and serve as our new "front door". The museum is offering a variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities as we prepare for this exciting time in the museum's future.
