Moms Get in Free on Sunday to Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine
In business since 1939, the Seashore Trolley Museum is a treasure for the town of Kennebunkport, Maine. The museum just opened for its 83rd season, and is the world's first and largest electric railway museum.
For the month of May, the Seashore Trolley Museum is only open on the weekends from 9:30 AM from 4:30 PM, but starting June 1, the museum will be open Wednesdays through Sundays through October 31.
Do you have something for mom to do that's educational and fun? Here's an idea.
On Mother's Day this Sunday, May 8, all moms get in free at the Seashore Trolley Museum.
Tell mom you're going to take her on a ride that goes back in time to a place before you were born...and before she was born.
According to trolleymuseum.org, the museum pays homage to the public transit history and its impact since the early 1900s.
The site goes on to state that "Our world-renowned collection includes vehicles from almost every major city in the United States that had streetcar systems, as well as from across the world. From the omnibus, to electric streetcars, buses, light rail vehicles, and rapid transit cars, we’ve got them all."
There are outdoor exhibits displayed in three carhouses, a Restoration Shop, Museum Store, and of course, interactive trolley rides for all.
Bring your lunch, because they have picnic areas. The campus and trolley rides are dog-friendly, so animal moms are welcome as well as the pups and daddy dogs.
Also from the website, there's a new exhibit this season. "'A Window onto the World' will be available in the Museum’s Visitors Center. This exhibit features the museum’s international transit collection and was made possible by an enterprise grant provided by the Maine Office of Tourism."
If you go, face coverings are optional, but let the conductor know before boarding if you would like to be socially distanced from others.
Purchase tickets in advance here, and all aboard for fun for moms everywhere.
