This attraction is a must if you're into railroad / trolley history. The best days to visit this museum are when they have trolley excursions. Check the museum website for the trolley excursion schedule. Get to the museum when it opens to avoid crowds.

I was very surprised at the length of the tour. it goes from the museum to the ballpark and back. they stop or slow down to point out numerous points of interest along the way. the mile long tunnel is also pretty cool.
