All aboard! We are opening for our 84th season on Saturday, May 6th from 9:30AM-4:30PM and will be open weekends in May, and Wednesdays-Sundays from June 1st through Halloween.
Experience history in motion on interactive trolley rides on the museum’s private heritage electric railroad, which once served as a portion of Maine’s Atlantic Shore Line Railway (1902-1927). Admission on regular admission days includes unlimited trolley rides, which take approximately 40 minutes and cover 3.7 miles. Check out several outdoor exhibits and trolleys displayed in three carhouses. Visit the Restoration Shop and view trolleys currently being restored back to their former glory by museum staff and volunteers. Subway cars, locomotives, buses, a switching tower and other interesting artifacts are also on display around the museum’s grounds. The Museum Store offers several locally-made gifts to choose from. Pack your lunch and enjoy one of several picnic areas across campus. The campus and trolley rides are also dog-friendly.
To kick the season off right, Saturday, May 6th is also Maine Day at Seashore! Residents of Maine get in for $2.07; all youth (from all states) ages 16 and under are free. Purchase tickets at the door to get the Maine Day admissions discount.
Other special admission days in May include free admission for mothers on Mother’s Day (includes mothers of pets) and Military Appreciation Days on May 20th, May 27th and May 28th with free admission for all active military personnel and veterans.
