Pandemic Reopening Notice

Trolley Car No.10 is back ... On track!


We will reopen Saturday July 3, 2021.
Please make a Donation to our General Fund to help us through this temporary closure.

The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum will reopen for the 2021 season on July 3, 2021. However, we recommend that you check www.SFTM.org for updates.

We will follow all Massachusetts and Federal guidelines in our operation. At this point that would mean that anyone not vaccinated should wear a mask, and everyone must be masked when in the Visitors Center or on the trolley or pump car or in the caboose. There are no separation or capacity restrictions. The museum reserves the right to enforce mask and/or distancing requirements that are stricter than the minimum. Of course, even if mask requirements are completely dropped, you can always wear a mask if you choose.

The museum's Board of Directors is committed to keeping SFTM alive through this challenge. The museum has already been in existence for as many years as the Shelburne Falls and Colrain Street Railway ran trolley cars, and we expect to be in it for the long run.

While we were closed we did some small group and solo work projects, to keep maintenance up and to improve the museum experience for when we reopen.

Being closed in 2020 and in the early 2021 saves us thousands of dollars in insurance and marketing, allowing us to conserve our funds so that we can continue our preservation and education mission in the future. We did miss our visitors and the sounds of the trolley humming along under the wire.

You can find all the Massachusetts COVID guidelines here.

In the meantime, you can watch our movies on our YouTube channel.
