The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum wants you to take a ride into the past. Visit us to learn about how trolleys played a vital role in the growth of American cities, ride beautifully restored trolley cars, and explore our museum and exhibits. The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum came to Chartiers Township, Washington County in February 1954 with three trolleys and a dream that was born in 1941. Today, that dream is a reality. PTM now boasts a collection of nearly 50 cars, over 600 members worldwide, 150 active volunteers, and over 30,000 visitors each year. For old and young, we're tons of fun! The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum began in 1954 with three trolleys and a dream. Today, that dream is a reality. We now display a collection of nearly 50 cars with over a dozen in operating order, have over 150 regular volunteers, and receive over 30,000 visitors each year.
