“Worth doing if in town”

Fort Smith Trolley Museum
Ranked #7 of 34 things to do in Fort Smith
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 June 2018 via mobile

We were in Fort Smith and wandered down to the museum (plenty of free parking). Trolley was about to go so missed the museum. Paid the conductor $4 each and off we went. Loads of local historic stories and fairly interesting. Museum in the middle of the line so in the end the total time spent there was well over an hour as many stops for a talk about the area.

We stopped in on the way to The Fort Smith National Historic Site. There are a number of trolleys undergoing restoration as well as railroad rolling stock on the property. We took a short trolley tour prior to the normally scheduled tours. We also took a tour of the repair shop. Even though it was only a short visit and there are limited things to see, it was definitely worth a stop.

My husband and I took our two boys to ride the trolley. We walked around the station and a train came by and stopped, so we hopped on. It was 4 dollars per person, and we enjoyed the ride (especially the kids), but, unfortunately, there was a truck parked on the tracks, so we didn't get to take the entire tour. I wish we could have recovered some of the money, since we only went a couple hundred feet, but I considered it a donation and moved on. lol. Next time, hopefully, we can see the entire tour around and I can bump up my review to excellent.

The ride goes about a dozen blocks through town as the conductor shares about the history of the fort and the city- a great history lesson for kids! The "museum" is outside with a gift shop and a friendly herd of cats inside (very kid-friendly).
