This was a part of our bus tour. The trolley car was clean and beautifully restored. The staff were helpful and nice. The gift shop had things you might actually want to buy.

Guessing this is an under-visited museum, but you are missing a piece of transportation history. The volunteers are a wonderful group as is the trolley ride. Even found an old street car from my town.
