I was very surprised at the length of the tour. it goes from the museum to the ballpark and back. they stop or slow down to point out numerous points of interest along the way. the mile long tunnel is also pretty cool.

Really cool place for a railroad or trolley buff to check out. Lots of history here. Adjacent to steam town historic site. Easy to kill two birds with one stone

The Electric City Trolley Station and Museum was a fun experience for our family. The Trolley ride was fun and educational. The price was great for a family of 5. We will be back!

Very impressed with this unique museum. Large collection of memorabilia. History of trolleys in US was very informative.... a surprising insight into this period of time.

This museum brought to life how trolleys were developed in Scranton's glory days, and then defeated by the rise of the automobile. There aren't many actual trolleys in the museum, most of the exhibits are maps, signaling equipment and photographs. So if possible try to...More
