Education and historic preservation


The purpose and mission of the Minnesota Streetcar Museum is to preserve and communicate to the public the experience of Minnesota's electric street and interurban railway history. To accomplish this mission the Museum operates historic streetcars at two demonstration railways in Minneapolis and Excelsior, Minnesota. The Museum also publishes a quarterly history magazine and a newsletter for its members.

2021 Goals

In 2021, are capital campaign goals are to:

  1. Replace rotten wire poles at the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line. Some of the poles that hold up the overhead wire (which powers the streetcars) are rotten and are in need of replacement so that we can continue to operate for another 50+ years.
  2. Rebuild the 3rd and 4th motors as part of the restoration of 1907 Twin Cities streetcar 1239. This is part of of a multi-year mechanical rehabilitation of this over 100 year old streetcar.
  3. Pave the Excelsior carbarn and realign Track 3. This is necessary for us to be able to fit all of our streetcars inside the barn.
