National Streetcar Museum at Lowell Open
May 5, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 11:59 pm
The National Streetcar Museum at Lowell is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11AM-4PM. Located at 25 Shattuck Street, guests will learn about the influence street railways had on the development of cities in the United States.
The museum showcases the history of the streetcar, more commonly known as the trolley. This museum is a “must see” for those who love learning about railroads, transit history and Lowell history. Children will love the variety of interactive exhibits and displays, especially the museum’s hands-on activities. Knowledgeable, friendly volunteers are available to answer questions and to offer guided tours of the exhibits. A small play area and other transit artifacts are on display outside the museum. The average museum visit by families is 45-60 minutes.
Masks are required inside the museum at this time. Capacity limits on admission will be implemented if needed to ensure social distancing. High touch surfaces will be frequently sanitized by museum volunteers. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the museum.
Admission is just $3 per person. Seniors and youth ages 3-12 are $2, and children under three are free. To keep the price of admission low, the museum only accepts cash or check. Those who prefer to pay via credit card may pre-purchase tickets at https://streetcarmuseum.eventbrite.com.
Metered, on-street parking is available in front of the museum and is free on Sundays. Parking is free in the National Park Service Visitor Center Lot every day. The museum is located across the street, at the Mack Building.
Before or after you visit, hop on one of Lowell National Historical Park’s trolleys for a free trolley ride, with a stop near the museum. Trolleys are running on a reduced schedule this season due to the pandemic; more information can be found at https://www.nps.gov/lowe/planyourvisit/hours.htm
