There’s A Magical Trolley Ride Near Pittsburgh That Most People Don’t Know About
All aboard! Climb aboard an old-fashioned trolley that will take you on a
magical trolley ride near Pittsburgh. Snap photos and selfies as the authentic trolley slowly trudges along the tracks, revealing the breathtaking masterpiece that is the Southwestern Pennsylvania landscape.
Visit the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in Washington, an historic museum that has hosted visitors since 1954.
Begin by purchasing your ticket, which includes an introductory video, a tour of the museum and, perhaps best of all, unlimited trolley rides. Adults pay a general admission fee of $10 with special rates for seniors ($9) and children ages three to 15 ($7).
Discover the enchanting history of the trolley by viewing the introductory movie and perusing the historic photography exhibits.
Stop by the historic collection of trolleys housed at the museum that includes trolley cars dating back as far as 1890 (a Pullman that operated on Pittsburgh Railways).
Arguably, the highlight of your journey begins when you first catch a glimpse of the working trolleys on the tracks.
Soak in the indescribable view of the railroad tracks that lay out before you as the conductor guides the trolley along its path. The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum often holds special events and welcomes familiar faces such as...
The Easter Bunny and Pittsburgh's most popular mailman, Mr. McFeely, with whom generations of Pittsburghers grew up.
Add the trolley museum to your autumn itinerary. The Pumpkin Patch Trolley celebrates the spooktacular Halloween season and runs Fridays through Sundays the final three weekends of October.
Visit Mr. and Mrs. Claus aboard the festive Santa Trolley November 25 to 27 and December 3 and 4, 10 and 11, and 17 and 18.
Throw a birthday party aboard one of the historic trolleys. Bring a special group to the museum or give your loved one a gift of being "Operator for an Hour," which includes such fun benefits as an official certificate and a museum membership.
Plan a trip to the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum which operates through December, although hours vary according to the season. The fall season runs on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last tour leaving at 3 p.m.
