EAST WINDSOR, CONN., June 24, 2022– The Connecticut Trolley Museum (CTM) presents Summer activities that will start on June 21st and runs until Sept 4th.

Summertime is the best time to visit the CTM, visit once or all summer long! CTM will hold activities for all ages! Let CTM help you make memories that will last a lifetime!

All summer long CTM will hold many activities including:

Trolley Rides: Take a Trolley ride operated by period dressed motormen.  Learn historic information about each car you ride and how the museum began.

Trolley Experiences: Get up close and personal as you climb aboard stationary trolleys from our incredible collection in our Visitors Center. From streetcars to Interurban cars this is your chance to take the controllers and let your imagination “operate”.

Crafting Station: Make a Motorman Hat, create your own trolley fare ticket and make finger print paper trolley cars! Take your new creations home with you for future use.

Dress-up Station: Dress up as a Motorman or Conductor! Great Photo op!

LEGO Build: During your visit build your own Lego creation focusing on trolley and trains from the past and future. After you creation is built display it for all to see throughout the summer.
