Long Description:
Nestled in the rolling hills around Pittsburgh, PA, the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum provides visitors with a trip through time, with a variety of trolleys from different eras. Some of them are even available ride. Two barns worth of trolleys are available to view. Most trolleys have signs that tells something about the trolley. Some of the trolleys even have news articles about its former use as, for instance, a home. One barn is accessible via a trolley ride.

The visitor center, part of the car shop where trolley cars are either restored or repaired, has some exhibits about trolleys and Pittsburgh's trolley system, as well as restroom facilities and a gift shop.
