{Santa with Children}

Storytime Trolley with Santa and Friends at the Connecticut Trolley Museum, East Windsor, Connecticut

This unique daytime holiday program has been specially designed to provide an outstanding and festive holiday experience for families with children.

Visitors will enjoy a ride in a decorated vintage trolley car where Santa will visit with each child. Also, while on board Santa's elf will read The Tooth Fairy vs. Santa, a story written by local author Jamie Deenihan from Suffield, Connecticut. After listening to the story Santa will present each child with a special gift.

Following the trolley ride, Museum guests will head to the Visitors Center for hot cocoa and cookies. The Visitors Center is a Winter Wonderland with multiple model train layouts, holiday lights galore, and a photo opportunity with Frosty the Snowman.

Make sure to arrive 15 minutes early as the Storytime Trolley leaves prompty at its scheduled departures!

Friday, Saturday and Sunday Nights November 29, 2019 to December 29, 2019 Nights in November & December 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

{Train at Night}

Join hundreds of others and start a family tradition of coming for a trolley ride during the holiday season. Whether you ride a closed car or brave the cold to ride the open "electric sleigh", we promise you a good time and one that you'll remember for years. Join your motormen in singing traditional Christmas carols as the trolley makes its way through the "Tunnel of Lights". When you return, head inside the Visitors Center which has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with model trains, decorations galore, and you can even buy a delicious cup of hot cocoa to sip as you enjoy the entertainment.

{Trolley in Snow}

While enjoying the indoor displays and snacks, make sure to visit and take pictures with the big guy himself, Santa Claus. Santa will also have a gift for each child. Plan ahead - Santa's last day at the trolley museum is Sunday, December 23rd, which then he'll be heading back to the North Pole to prepare for his travels around the world.
