Description

You'll be a really "cool" parent if you book the Baltimore Streetcar Museum for your child's next birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzvah or graduation party. When you book the Museum, you will have use of our Visitor's Center facilities. Our auditorium features our own "Trolley Theatre" in which children can watch a video about streetcars or perhaps you'd like to bring your own along to show. Add you own ice cream, cake, munchies and gifts, and you'll be the talk of your child's friends and parents. (Please note that you are responsible for providing party food, favors and decorations.)

From our collection, we have cars that were built in two different centuries (1800's and 1900's) available for your enjoyment. As time permits, we take your guests on several rides into yesterday and give them an idea of what Light Rail used to be in Baltimore in the 1800's and 1900's. For groups of older children, we will be pleased to show them our collection during a Car House tour. They will see things like our 1859 horse car, our crane car and an electric bus, known as a trackless trolley.

History
