Pennsylvania Trolley Museum’s stockings are hung by the trolleys with care with the knowledge that Santa Claus will soon be there! The merriest man himself will be visiting the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum during the annual Santa Trolley. Join the museum during November 25-27, December 3-4, 10-11 and 17-18 for this spectacular event that runs from 10AM-5PM with the last trolley departing at 4:45PM. Guests will have the opportunity to climb aboard restored streetcars that will transport them on the museum’s 2 mile track.

•  Santa will be happy to have visitors take his picture, so make sure you remember to bring your camera.

•  Stop by the museum’s large Lionel toy train layout. This year’s layout will make you feel like a giant looking down on a beautiful Christmas village.

•  In the museum’s Event Room, you will get to see the wonderful LEGO layout built by Steel City L.U.G., the Pittsburgh Area’s Adult LEGO® User Group.

•  The holiday spirit will be all throughout the air and your bellies will be filled with complimentary hot chocolate and cookies.

•  Children can enjoy making a craft.

•  Admission for the Santa Trolley is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+) and $8 for children ages 1-15; children under 1 are free.

SANTA Trolley admission includes your trip on the Santa Trolley,  a trip on the Yuletide shuttle to visit the South Pole and all open exhibits.

This event is very popular so we do suggest advance ticket purchases be made online due to the limited seating. The tickets can be purchased at Tickets are on sale now!

Visitors not having online reservations (walk in customers) may purchase tickets for the Yuletide ride only at the ticket counter.  Unsold Santa Trolley seats may be available to these visitors.  We are sorry, but there is no way to guarantee or determine this before your arrival, so it is first come first served.
