Fort Smith Trolley Museum

Learn More About the History of Fort Smith

For anyone interested in how America built its transportation systems, the Fort Smith Trolley Museum is an incredible place to learn about the preservation and restoration of rail equipment. Home to numerous displays and exhibits, Fort Smith's top cultural institution showcases the past of the city's streetcar and trolley system. Don't miss your chance to see one of the top attractions in Fort Smith, Arkansas, while learning about a crucial part of the history of transportation in the United States. 

In addition to the trolleys, the Museum is also home to a rail collection. Guests will see a Frisco steam engine and tender (#4003) donated by the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair Board, which had previously been on display at Kay Rodgers Park & Fairground (the old-time "Electric Park") since 1954; there are also three cabooses, a former military power car and dining car, three boxcars, three internal combustion locomotives, railway speeders, and a track mobile.

The Fort Smith Trolley Museum also offers hands-on exhibitions and activities, including occasional opportunities to actually operate a working trolley. Make a day of it, and explore one of the best places to experience preserved transportation history near our Fort Smith hotel.
