This lovely museum displays and operates restored trolleys and interurban which run on the former lines of Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley Railroad. When you visit this site, there is an hour tour which takes you through a long tunnel which beautifully replicates typical 1920s ride. It is an excellent experience to sit back in time. A totally fun, fascinating and knowledgeable ride which will give you lots of information about the trolleys. If you happen to remember the famous “John Oliver Train Set” you can watch it here. The renovations have beautified the place and the museum is one such site you will fall in love with. Happy riding!

Electric City Trolley Museum Association Reviews & Ratings
Great place. Nice trolley ride. Informative. Don't listen to the review about "money for the space". It's to restore history and to keep it alive. It helps pay the upkeep on the rails. The electricity for the trolley. The salary for the employees. The upkeep of the buildings. It's not expensive at all. They also have bells your kids can ring. Trolleys they can role play on. Puzzles for them too. It's worth the visit.
Made it just in time for their last ride of the day. Very attentive staff and the conductor was very friendly and knowledgeable. The ride is about 50mins long and the seats are comfy. At the end of the ride there's a small room where one can see how the trolleys are restored and artifacts. There's a museum with history on the electric trolleys but didn't get to check it out this time. Worth it and looking forward to visiting again.
You Will Love the Museum and the Old restored Trolleys! Riding these old Trolleys will definitely be you Back in Time when Trolley Cars was a way to get from point A to Point B! Without polluting the air! They were eco-friendly! The Gift Shop is Great too! You can buy Beautiful souvenir at a Great Price!!!!
The trolley ride was almost an hour thru parts of scranton and Montague mountain we have never seen. Mostly trees which we plan another trip in the fall for leaf peaking. The staff were very friendly and answered all our questions. We even went to the museum which had different trolleys you can walk thru.
Always a great time... Great artists and fun fun fun for everyone.
