An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Friday, repeating until August 30, 2019
Every Friday put your building skills to the test and compete in a LEGO Contest during your visit building Trains or Trolleys from the past and future. The contest is geared for ages 4-12 and every week will be a different theme. Winners will be awarded prizes in three age categories, and participants need not be present to win. Creations stay at the Museum to be broken down at the end of the day. LEGO contest included with admission.
All summer long CTM will hold many activities including, Trolley Rides: Take as many trolley rides as you would like operated by period dressed motormen. Learn historic information about each car you ride and how the museum began. Trolley Experiences: Get up close and personal as you climb aboard selected trolleys from our incredible collection in our Visitors Center. From streetcars to Interurban cars this is your chance to take the controllers and let your imagination “operate”. Crafting Station: Make a Motorman Hat, create your own trolley fare ticket and make finger print paper trolley cars! Take your new creations home with you for future use. Dress-up Station: Dress up as a Motorman or Conductor! Great Photo op! Fire Truck Museum: View over 15 Fire Trucks dating back to 1923.
