A visit to this quirky museum is a good choice for railroad fans and young families, many whom say it can be hard to get their kids to leave. Founded in 1939, the Seashore Trolley Museum has amassed more than 250 trolleys, buses and subway cars from around the globe. Visitors can learn about the history of public transportation and even take a ride in a few select cars.
