Updated: November 29, 2020
As of November 17, the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is closed to the public for the rest of the year and into next season. A reopening date has not yet been announced. The Museum made the difficult decision to cancel the Santa: A Gift of Four Seasons event due to the worsening pandemic. We consider the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff to be of top importance, and though we had designed the event to comply with state COVID-19 guidelines, we felt it was safest to cancel the event and all public operations until further notice.
Please stay tuned to our website and Facebook for the latest information.
