Electric City Trolley Museum
Did you know that Scranton’s nickname is The Electric City? Then what a perfect place for the Electric City Trolley Museum.
Trolleys originally were horse drawn, after that they were run on electric rails well into the twentieth century.
The Electric City Trolley Museum is located in downtown Scranton, at the Steamtown National Historic Site. Not only do they house the history of trains and trolleys, there are exhibits and biographies of those that made the difference in what became our current public transportation system.
While you’re there take a Trolley Excursion Tour. After seeing the sites of the museum, you’ll see the sites of Scranton for a nominal fee. It’s definitly fun for all ages throughout the year.
