Event description
Join us for an evening reception to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Museum in Northwest Branch Park.

About this Event

Please join us as we celebrate our 50th anniversary of Museum operations in Northwest Branch Park. Since opening the Museum on October 17, 1969, more than one million passengers have traveled through the Park on our antique trams and trolleys. Eighty-five thousand school children have learned about the impact of trolleys in community development of Montgomery County and the Washington DC metropolitan area.

Looking ahead to the next 50 years, the Museum anticipates restoration and interpretation of more of its collection and the provision of an urban square in the green space in the Visitor Center loop.

The Museum appreciates its continued partnership with Montgomery Parks and recognizes financial support from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, Heritage Montgomery, Montgomery County Council, the Executive’s Ball, the Maryland General Assembly, the Maryland Department of Transportation, the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority, the Tom E. Dailey Foundation, the 21st Century Electric Railway Foundation, and the many generous individuals and businesses that support the Museum annually.

Your $50 ticket includes trolley rides, appetizers, beer, wine, iced tea, and lemonade.
