Twin Cities Business Listing

Water Street and George Street, Excelsior, MN 55331
Admission: $3.00
One ride: $3 per person, children 3 and under free; Day Pass: $5. Season passes available.

The Excelsior Line of the Minnesota Streetcar Museum boards on Water Street between 3rd and George Street or at Old Excelsior Blvd. near Minnetonka Blvd. Excelsior is one of the beautiful Twin Cities day-trip locations that can keep a family happily active for a full day and still be close enough to home to quit when the day gets too long — perfect for families with small children. No visit to Excelsior would be complete without a ride on the Excelsior Line of the Minnesota Streetcar Museum.

Bucket List Item: Visit the Excelsior Streetcar Musuem
This is actually the Como-Harriet Line, but both Lines look similar


  • This is not a physical museum.  The Streetcars themselves make up the museum.
  • Streetcars do not run in the rain.
  • The Como-Harriet Lines are part of this museum, but we list them separately in our directory.

Brief History via the Minnesota Streetcar Museum

The Minnesota Streetcar Museum was created in December, 2004, as part of the restructuring of the Minnesota Transportation Museum which “spun off” its streetcar and steamboat operations to MSM and the Museum of Lake Minnetonka respectively during the winter of 2004-2005. MTM, which now focuses on railroading, was founded in 1962 to preserve Twin City Lines streetcar No. 1300 and, over the years, expanded into a multi-modal transportation museum preserving buses,  a steamboat, streetcars,  trains, and several railroad-related buildings.
