The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum has restored, and operates for the public a trolley car built in 1896 (one of the oldest operating trolleys in the country) for the Shelburne Falls and Colrain Street Railway. Your all-Day-Pass includes a trip back in time on the trolley (bring your imagination), a self-powered ride on our antique pump car and a chance to explore our Visitors Center, with pictures, toy trains and more.

I've lived in Western Mass for over 20 years, but I had never been to the Trolley Museum. Trolley rides are fairly inexpensive and a mere $4 ticket will give you an all day pass. You can even challenge yourself to try the hand pump...More

We stopped by the Trolley Museum after a visit to the Bridge of Flowers, and to my delight my grandchildren (ages 5, 8 and 10) loved it. The small exhibit area is geared to kids, with a Brio train setup and model trolley cars activated...More

My grandson loves trains and whales. After a visit to the Bridge of Flowers, which was not so interesting to my young grandsons, this was more to their liking. My eldest grandson especially liked being able to help man the pull car.

All volunteer, loved that there are high school kids volunteering along with older folks. Really enjoyed learning about trolleys in this area. Always thought the trolleys were about big cities,but no. Will surely bring the grandchildren when we have some..

We were there based on GPS and did not know they were closed during the week in September. Only found 3 trolleys on the property, one may be working the other two no way. Center was closed but we did take pictures outside.

The volunteers there are great at talking about the history of the railway in the area. The museum is small, but it covers everything. The trolley ride and the pulley car are the best part!

A fun spot to check out the old time trolley cars. Just walk around and enjoy your time and see how others traveled

I'm not a train fan, if I was, this review would likely be 5 stars. What a cute little museum this is! For $4 a person, educated volunteers take you on a short ride in a renovated original trolley (with an interesting history) and let...More
