Trolley is now wheelchair accessible.

The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum kicks off summer on Memorial Day Weekend. Trolley rides, pump car rides, toy trains and displays will be available from 11am to 5pm every Saturday, Sunday and holiday until October 26. The museum, at 14 Depot St Shelburne Falls, MA, will also be open Mondays from 1pm to 5pm in July and August. The museum now features wheelchair access to the trolley, so that everyone can ride back in time.

Take a fifteen minute ride back in time on the beautifully restored trolley No. 10. Built in 1896 and restored in 1999, this 117-year-old trolley carried freight and passengers on tracks between Shelburne Falls and Colrain until 1926. This wooden, electrically-powered car crossed the Deerfield River on a concrete bridge that is now known as the Bridge of Flowers. The museum's Visitors Center has pictures of the bridge and other local scenes in its trolley days, a display of the
restoration process that brought this rare car back to life, a Kids Corner with wooden and electric toy trains and the TrolleyShop store with books, magazines and gift items.

The museum also features a caboose that can be explored, and an old-fashioned pump car that is often available for rides. The not-for-profit museum is operated by volunteers and welcomes new volunteers. The museum may be open by chance at other times and special arrangements can be made for field trips or parties. Tickets are $4.00 for adults, $2.00 for children 6-12 and free for kids 5 and under. For more details see www.sftm.org.
