The Trolley Museum of New York has been in downtown Kingston on the Rondout Waterfront since 1983. TMNY became an established attraction on East Strand just as the area started its rise as a popular tourist destination and evening dining hot spot. Now the Trolley Museum of New York is a top “thing to do” for all visitors to the vital Kingston Waterfront!
The goals of the museum are to offer a ride to the public and through exhibits and educational programs to share the rich history of rail transportation and the role it played in the Hudson Valley region. In addition to static displays of trolley, subway and rapid transit cars from the United States and Europe, an excursion ride runs 1½ miles from the foot of Broadway in downtown Kingston to picnic grounds on the shore of the Hudson River at Kingston Point. Picnic tables are available at each of the the three main stops on the trolley line: Kingston Point Park, T. R. Gallo Memorial Park (Rondout Creek) and the museum itself.
The Museum Store carries everything for the trolley fan, from toys for the kids to books for the collector.
