Seashore Trolley Museum

195 Log Cabin Rd.
Kennebunkport, ME, 04046, United States
TEL: (207) 967-2712

Ted Santarelli, John Amlaw, and Gerald Cunningham founded this museum in 1939 to celebrate the region’s rail-riding tradition. The non-profit New England Electric Railway Historical Society has since amassed the world's largest collection of electric transit vehicles, including streetcars, buses, light rails and rapid transit cars. Various car barns, car houses, and stations dot the tree-lined property, housing cars like Connecticut Co. 1391 from the Osgood Bradley Car Co., which dates to 1910, and a 1945 Pullman car. The most popular attraction is the unlimited rides along the 1.5-mile track, through the wilderness, to Talbott Park, a grassy stretch with picnic tables and gazebo.

Insider Tip:

Drive down Log Cabin Road and continue on North Street to reach Kennebunkport, home to dining options like rissini Italian bistro and The Clam Shack, for summer seafood.
