Take A Ride On Antique Trains And Trolleys At These Incredible Connecticut Museums

At these Connecticut museums, take a ride back in time on authentic trains, trolleys, and even a riverboat. You’ll also learn about the local ecosystem and history as you take in the amazing views.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Each of these museums combines learning about local locomotive history with a highly Instagrammable ride experience. Most host special events seasonally, including “haunted” rides for Halloween. Would you prefer to ride on a summer day, or will you hold out for spookier rides later in the year?
