The Trolley Museum of New York (TMNY) has been in downtown Kingston on the Rondout Waterfront since 1983. TMNY became an established attraction on East Strand just as the area started its rise as a popular tourist destination and evening dining hot spot. Now the Trolley Museum is a top thing to do for all visitors to the vital Kingston Waterfront!
NY is a New York State-chartered non-profit educational organization that was founded in Brooklyn in 1955. The museum offers a ride for the public and through exhibits and educational programs shares the rich history of rail transportation and the role it played in the Hudson Valley region and elsewhere.
In addition to static displays of trolley and subway cars from the United States and Europe, an excursion ride runs 1½ miles from the foot of Broadway in Downtown Kingston to picnic grounds on the shore of the Hudson River at Kingston Point. Picnic tables are available at each of the three main stops on the trolley line: T. R. Gallo Memorial Park (Downtown at Rondout Creek), Kingston Point Park, and the museum itself.
