Daniel Tiger Visits Seashore with Maine Public Television! Take an adventure to Seashore Trolley Museum on September 11th and 12th for a socially distanced meet and greet with Daniel Tiger, from the PBS KIDS series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.
Hop on a trolley shuttle to Highwood Carhouse to meet Daniel and Seashore’s very own Biddeford & Saco Car 31 to visit and to take socially distanced photos with Daniel and this special trolley car. Enjoy other activities around the Museum campus, including Maine Public Television’s fun activity tent, story time on a trolley, coloring, and other family activities! Guests can also visit our regular Museum exhibits and displays, as well as ride trolleys on our private 3-mile round trip heritage railroad!

Stroller parking will be available near Tower C.

Seashore Trolley Museum has a Mobilift to help guests with mobility challenges access our trolleys. The Mobilift is compatible with trolleys that will be operating on our regular railway during the event, but not on the shuttles that will take families to Highwood Carhouse to meet Daniel. There is an access road families can use to drive or walk to Highwood; please email Patti Chase (contact info below) to let us know if you would like to take advantage of this option.
Seashore’s COVID policies continue to change as the rate of spread changes in York County, Maine. Prior to the event all ticketholders will receive up-to-date information about any additional precautions we plan to take to keep our guests as safe as possible during the event.
At this time:
- Per Federal guidelines, masks must be worn while on the trolley by everyone 5 years old and older. Masks are optional on the Museum campus if you are fully vaccinated.
- Special precautions are being taken to meet Daniel Tiger. Lines will be carefully monitored for appropriate distancing and families will be in sufficient proximity to Daniel for photos, but no touching will be possible. A sheet of plexiglass will separate visitors from Daniel.
- All trolleys will be disinfected before and after each ride.
