The Connecticut Trolley Museum Winterfest 2017 and “The Tunnel of Lights” will be open from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. on December 1–3, 8–10, 15–17 and 22–23. A new addition to the trolley ride this year is a tree light show synchronized with music. Santa will be onsite until he heads back to the North Pole after closing on December 23. The event will also be held December 26-30 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. for School Vacation Break.

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 and decorations galore;  you can even buy a delicious cup of hot cocoa to sip as you enjoy the entertainment.

Additionally, meet and pose for a picture with Santa inside one of the historic trolleys. Santa will also have a gift for each child. Admission prices are $12 for Adults, $11 for Seniors (62+), $10 for Children (ages 4-12) , $3 for Children (3 & under) and Museum Members receive half off admission.
