The Trolley Museum kicks off the season with the “Museum In Motion” festival on June 25

EAST HAVEN, CT – All aboard for awesomeness.

On June 25, the Shore Line Trolley Museum kicks off its 2022 summer season with “Museum In Motion,” a day of parades, photo ops, trolley rides and bluegrass. This annual event features meticulously restored antique trams, work equipment, subway cars and electric locomotives, many of which are not usually on display to the public. The cars will be outside and ready for photo ops all day. And the carts come alive for two parades, the first at 11:30 a.m. and the second at 2:30 p.m. Each car stops at the grandstand and visitors will hear a short story about each car and photos and videos can be taken while the cars are in motion.

Tickets are $15 and they’re on sale now for both parades at and can be purchased online or at the door on the day of the event.

“We can’t think of a better way to kick off our 2022 summer season,” said the Shore Line Trolley
The museum’s executive director, John Proto. “Thanks to funding from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, we are able to offer new summer programs like Sensory Friendly Tuesday Afternoons and bring back some educational programs that we have not been able to run since the beginning of the pandemic like Storytime Tuesdays, Motorized Visitor Days, Scouting Merit Badge programs, and school outings and day camps. We also look forward to hosting shared fundraising events in the summer and fall with other local non-profit organizations. Our calendar is updated frequently, so visitors should check our website often.”
