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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.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?
