The Minnesota Streetcar Museum is a collection of restored, historic streetcars. These streetcars are active and run at select times between May and October, weather permitting.
- This is not a physical museum. The Streetcars themselves make up the museum.
- Streetcars are not run in the rain.
- The Excelsior Lines are part of this museum, but we list them separately in our directory.
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.
