2020 Season Opening Day Postponed
May 2 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Out of an abundance of caution, 2020 Season Opening Day has been postponed. Check back for updates!
Come out to the Seashore Trolley Museum on Saturday, May 2nd for the 2020 Season Opening Day! Be with us as we kick off an exciting 2020 season! We have dozens of special events planned throughout the 2020 season.
2020 Season Opening Day kicks it all off. Guests with a Maine driver’s license get in for $2.07, and all guests 16 and under get in free! Each guest will get a free ticket to enter a door prize raffle for great prize. Ride Seashore’s Pump Car for $2/person! Seashore’s “mother car” the Biddeford & Saco 31 will be featured. It’s going to be a GREAT day–you won’t want to miss it! Tickets can be purchased at the door.
As you would expect, we have activities planned for the young (and the young at heart!). There are theme days focused around featured trolleys and the states or countries from whence they came. Of course that means special considerations for any guest that happens to be from that region on that day. Whether you are a casual transportation fan or really like to know how things work we will have some special opportunities for you. This will include guided tours of our Restoration Shop, rides on “speeder” work cars or perhaps a workout on our vintage “pump car”.
If you want to get a “free” taste of the Museum and what is has to offer you can try our Free Story Time. For a sweeter taste there is always Ice Cream Night at Seashore. We will have tribute days for Mothers, Fathers, First Responders and Military Personnel to name a few. Even the family dog gets their day to be featured for special treats and treatment. We have been working steadily through the winter to have everything ready for an exciting 2020 season. We are excited and we hope you are too for all of the wonderful things planned for this year.
As an added bonus we will be offering Back Story Tours! Presented by Doug Carrier, these tours will provide a much more in-depth examination of various exhibits and the stories behind them. For over 20 years Doug has relished the opportunity educate and bring the collection to life by relating stories from the past. One of many cars in our collection with a storied past is Car 41. Car 41 was used as a diner after its service days. Did you know that Whitey Bulger was punched in the face by the diner’s owner? This tour will include, South Boston, Highwood, Central, Fairview, Restoration shop and yards such as Bennett yard. Not all of these locations are open to the public during normal operations. Buses are included for those who have an interest in that aspect of our collection.
