Trip Advisor National Capital Trolley Museum
Nov 25, 2013 by: SRTSS from Silver Spring, Maryland
A fun place for trolley and history buffs to spend an afternoon. Kids enjoy the trolley rides that come with the price of admission. The entry for this museum is misspelled, hence the title of my review. Also, don't ask the great volunteers about "trains," as these are trolleys and streetcars!



Trip Advisor Good for a side trip with the kids

There is not much there but it does keep the kids entertained for about an hour. Everybody that works there is a volunteer and extremely nice.



Trip Advisor Enjoy a Trolley Ride
Jul 29, 2013 by: John-MaryAnn from Silver Spring
Take a stroll back in time to the time of trolley cars and also take a ride on an operating trolley. Tour the history of trolleys and view artifacts related to trolleys especially in the Washington DC Metropolitan area. Guided tours are available in their car barns of their collection of trolleys from the DC Transit, from Europe and other American cities. A trolley ride on one of their trolleys is a delight. Trolleys from their collection are rotated for the rides on specific days. A great outing for families and people of all ages.



Trip Advisor Trolley rides and history

Open weekends,the museum operates streetcars from DC and other cities on a wooded park site. A model layout of a neighborhood in the 1920s can be activated by visitors. Good parking.



Trip Advisor Operating historic streetcars
Jul 21, 2013 by: Len A from 
Spacious, rail museum with tour of about 10 cars, a movie from the 1920s starring silent star Harold Lloyd, suspended from high edges above streetcar-traveled streets, and offering rides. Besides a car from DC which ran the last day of service, January 28,1962, older and newer cars run, usually one or two a day. These give visitors the sense of days gone by, and days to come again, as streetcars are coming back to American cities in certain metropolitan areas. An open car from England has no roof, may be in service if the weather is suitable.
