Seashore Trolley Museum proudly continues the legacy of its founders by maintaining and sharing our world-class transit collections and knowledge with you. Our exhibits and guides call attention to the technological, aesthetic, and historically significant characteristics of our collections.

Our visitors learn about, and gain a new appreciation for, the role public transportation.. Transit enthusiasts and professionals around the world know about the museum. We also welcome individuals, families, school groups, tourists and historians. Riding on a private railroad, in antique streetcars with uniformed crews is memorable. All of our visitors experience a powerful connection to the past at Seashore Trolley Museum.

Our vehicle collection represents the evolution of public transportation. It includes examples from the timeline of public transportation.
