Trolley Museum of New York

Details

An official Path Through History site! TMNY is a New York State chartered non-profit educational or­ga­ni­za­tion that was founded in Brooklyn in 1955. The museum offers a ride for the public and through exhibits and educational pro­grams shares the rich history of rail transportation and the role it played in the Hudson Valley region and elsewhere. In addition to static displays of trolley and subway cars from the United States and Europe, an excursion ride runs 1½ miles from the foot of Broad­way in Down­town Kingston to picnic grounds on the shore of the Hudson River at Kingston Point. Picnic tables are available at each of the three main stops on the trolley line: T. R. Gallo Me­mo­ri­al Park (Down­town at Rondout Creek), Kingston Point Park and the museum itself. The museum is located on the original site of the Ulster and Delaware Rail­road yards at Mile­post 1. The museum build­ing is on the foundation of the engine house that existed before 1900. The up­per level includes a Visitors Center fea­turing seasonal and per­ma­nent displays, a video viewing area and large windows over­looking the res­to­ra­tion shop. Visitors can see up to eight trolley cars being housed and restored below. The Trolley Museum of New York is a member of the Association of Tourist Railways and Railway Museums and American Association of Museums.
