New York Museum of Transportation
New York Museum of Transportation was founded in the early 1970s as a home for Rochester trolleys that were removed from a private museum in Pennsylvania. The volunteer organization maintains and exhibits fourteen trolley cars in addition to a variety of horse-drawn vehicles, a steam locomotive, and other artifacts related to the history of transportation in upstate New York.
Backstory and Context
In addition to tours, the museum also offers a STEM event in June for kids aged 3 through 12 that encourages kids to learn about the simple machines and technology involved in different types of transportation.
