If you or a guest in your group have mobility challenges when it comes to navigating steps into the trolleys, Seashore Trolley Museum has a Mobilift to help guests access some of the operating trolleys.

This season, Seashore Trolley Museum is giving back! They have selected nine other local nonprofits who will benefit from Ice Cream Nights in 2022 too. Each nonprofit will receive their own Ice Cream Night event and will receive 50% of all ticket sales; this means that they will receive $5 for every ticket sold to support their mission.
