Illuminated Cars - Largest Electric Railway Museum in the World

Cars spanning decades of electric railway technology

Seashore Trolley Museum is now closed for the season. We hope you will join us on 2022 Opening Day, Sunday, May 1st! Our Annual Meeting for members and shareholders will take place in-person on Saturday, April 30th.

We are participating in a local Trail of Lights contest this holiday season! To learn more about our light display, listen to the accompanying narration, and to vote for us, click HERE.

As the first and largest Electric Railway Museum in the world, our guests learn about and gain a new appreciation for the role public transportation has played throughout history.

Take a ride on our heritage railroad in a vintage trolley from the early 1900s. Explore three carhouses filled with beautiful, restored trolleys and several other precious transit artifacts around our outdoor campus. Our world-renowned collection includes vehicles from almost every major city in the United States that had streetcar systems, as well as from across the world. From the omnibus, to electric streetcars, buses, light rail vehicles, and rapid transit cars, we’ve got them all.

Visit our Restoration Shop where you can view many cars in the process of maintenance or comprehensive restoration. If you would like a snack or to shop for a memento of your visit, stop in at the Museum Store. We carry a wide variety of transit themed clothing, games, puzzles, books and other souvenirs to purchase for yourself or as a gift for a special person. Enjoy our beautiful grounds and picnic areas. It is our goal to provide a relaxing, fun and educational place to enjoy by yourself or with family and friends.

We welcome individuals, families, transit fans, school groups, tourists, historians, and anyone looking to re-live their childhood in our nostalgic setting. Because dogs are part of the family, we are dog-friendly. They are also welcome on our trolleys!

Seashore Trolley Museum is located in beautiful Kennebunkport, Maine, just 30 minutes south of Portland, Maine and 90 minutes north of Boston, Massachusetts. Our year-round satellite museum is the National Streetcar Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts.
