Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the uncertainty of what will be safe to do and when, and to protect the health and safety of our passengers, volunteers, and the public, streetcar operations will not start until it is safe to do so and also authorized by public health authorities. Check here on our site and on Facebook at MSM for updates and also for great trolley facts, photos, and fun. We’re not open and don’t know what the future brings, but we’re working on virtual ways to share the trolley experience - past and present - with you until we can safely operate our streetcars. Please be safe and stay healthy.
Como-Harriet Streetcar Line
Step back to the days when the streetcar was king — when Twin Citians went to work, to school, and to play by trolley! Visit the historic displays in our station, shop our unique gifts and souvenirs, then take a nostalgic ride on one of our historic streetcars along a scenic route between the lakes. Your Motorman will provide interesting information about the car and Minnesota streetcar history.
Excelsior Streetcar Line
Enjoy a trip through historic Excelsior along a half-mile of track built on the former right-of-way of the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway. The car stops at our car barn so passengers can view a photo gallery of hotels, trains, paddlewheel boats and landmarks from the 1800s; history, in pictures, of the Twin Cities Rapid Transit as it ran in Minneapolis and St. Paul; other streetcars in our collection; work in progress of restoring a vintage streetcar.
