Description:

This Steamtown National Historic Site resides in the restored, late 19th-century mill building in Scranton, PA (a.k.a. the Electric City). This museum commemorates the first successfully operational electric-powered streetcar system in the U.S. Enjoy interactive exhibits and displays, including vintage trolleys and you can climb aboard an authentic 1926 or 1932 antique trolley to take a 5.5-mile trip over Roaring Brook through the mile-long tunnel and along the original Laurel Line. The museum provides an in-depth look at the engineering, technology, and restoration of the legendary trolleys of the region with an incredible look at the under-the-skin view of a restored trolley, a Trolley Restoration Shop, and a hands-on interactive kids exhibit. The museum also features a 50-seat theater and the knowledgeable staff are eager to answer all your questions. Trolley excursions are available at the Steamtown National Historic Site which departs from the central passenger platform.
