The museum itself can be done in an hour or less. The real treat at Electric City is the trolley ride. Departing from the same platform as the Steamtown National Historic Site excursions, the trolley takes you over Roaring Brook, through the over 4,700 foot long Crown Avenue Tunnel, and up to PNC Field on Montage Mountain. The museum is located across the parking lot from Steamtown, and if you are short on time, trolley ride tickets can be purchased without museum admission.
