Founded in 1962, today's kids still love the Minnesota Streetcar Museum! Rather than a traditional brick and mortar building, this museum is a collection of restored, historic streetcars. These mini museums on tracks are active and run at select times between May and October.

Minnesota Streetcar Museum was originally part of the broader Minnesota Transportation Museum, but in December 2004 it became its own entity when MTM restructured to focus primarily on railroading. Currently, the museum maintains a fleet of eight historic Minnesota streetcars at the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line in Minneapolis and the Excelsior Streetcar Line (←we maintain a separate directory page for the Excelsior Line). Much of the museum's equipment comes from Metro Transit's predecessor, Twin City Rapid Transit. However, the museum represents street car history for all of Minnesota, and some of the equipment also originated in Duluth-Superior and Winona.

Important Notes:

  • 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.

Minnesota Streetcar Museum Events

The museum hosts several events throughout the year, which we list in our Family Fun Calendar. Look for special rides on summer Holidays, for Halloween and for Christmas. They also partner with Wild Rumpus Books a couple times a year for the popular Story Trolley series. These Wild Rumpus events almost always sell out within a day or two of ticket release.
