Programs and Services

  • The mission of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is to communicate the story of Pennsylvania's Trolley Era to a diverse audience through the preservation, interpretation, and use of its collection of electric railway and railroad equipment, associated artifacts and photo/document archives, and to ensure that its visitors have an enjoyable and rewarding educational experience.
  • Provides a living history interpretive experience to its visitors through exhibits, guided tours and actual rides on some of its beautifully restored streetcars.
  • Provides educational programs from pre-school through college with age appropriate educational programs. Partners with "Tickets for Kids" to provide educational programs for at-risk and under-served populations. Also provides educational programs both on-site and off-side to community groups such as scouting, senior citizen groups and historical societies.
  • Preserves rare streetcars, electric railway buildings, artifacts, documents and images which support its educational mission at its museum in Washington, PA.
  • Engages over 150 people from the community who volunteer their services at the Museum. Also acts as a training site for special needs groups such as Pathways.
  • Acts as an economic generator and heritage tourism attraction for the important travel and tourism industry in Washington County. Partners with like-minded heritage groups and the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency to help make Washington County a major tourism destination.
  • The overage of income over expenses is due to capital grants that will be spent in succeeding years.
