Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum

The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum starts its seventh season of trolley
rides May 6.
Take a fifteen minute ride back in time on the beautifully restored
trolley No. 10. Restored in 1999, this car was built in 1896 and carried
freight and passengers between Shelburne Falls and Colrain, Mass. until
1926. This wooden, electrically-powered car crossed the Deerfield River
on a concrete bridge that is now known as the Bridge of Flowers.
The museum's newly remodeled Visitors Center has pictures of the bridge
and other local scenes in its trolley days, a display of the restoration
process that brought this rare car back to life, a Kids Corner with wooden
and electric toy trains and the TrolleyShop store with books, magazines
and gift items. The museum also features a caboose and steam engine that
can be explored, and an old-fashioned pump car that is often available for
rides.
The museum is operated by volunteers and will be open every weekend and
holidays from 11am to 5pm, until November 6. Additionally, in July and
August, the museum will be open from 1pm to 5pm on Mondays. The
museum may be open by chance at other times and special arrangements
can be made for field trips or parties.
Tickets are $2.50 for adults, $1.25 for
children 6-12 and free for kids 5 and under.
