Take a step back in time, when we traveled by electric streetcar. Enjoy a leisurely ride through the scenic countryside. Visit our museum, located in Rockhill Furnace, PA. You and your family or tour group can learn about trolleys and see historic cars being restored in our shops. Become one of our talented volunteers, bring your friends to our special events, or become a member and enjoy exclusive outings!
Rockhill Trolley Museum welcomes your bus tour, school group, birthday party, or other group for rides on our demonstration railroad, tours of our restoration shops and the chance to browse our museum store for souvenirs, books, snacks, and information about trolleys from many areas of Pennsylvania.
Off-hour weekday and off-season group visits are possible, but advance arrangements must be made and may require a deposit and/or minimum charge of $300. Payment must be made upon arrival at the Museum.

On the grounds, we have a handicapped-accessible restroom located in the corner of the Food Pavilion. There are concrete walkways and ramps in the area of the Food Pavilion, and Museum Store.
However, our trolley cars are historic vehicles from another era. Although one must negotiate one or more high steps to enter all our cars, it is frequently possible, with advanced planning, to overcome the obstacles.
Please help us in our efforts to accommodate your unique needs by consulting with the Operations Department Head, Calvin Gerhard at (610) 678-3604, before arriving on the property. In these instances, a person to person conversation, rather than email exchange, results in the best solution.
Service animals by special arrangement only.
The Food Pavilion is usually available to our visitors when not scheduled for private parties. There is a soda machine and the adjacent museum store usually sells popcorn and flavored ice but food service is usually set up only as needed for museum volunteers on selected workdays. When it is open, it may be possible to purchase a meal.
At Santa’s Trolley and Polar Bear Express, cookies and hotdogs are usually available. At Pumpkin Patch Trolley, free pumpkin decorating supplies and assistance are available in the food pavilion, and at Easter Bunny Trolley, balloon creations and face-painting may take place here.
