Seashore's Exhibit Educates, A Review


Seashore Trolley Museum's Visitor Center building serves as its offices, board meeting room, book store/gift shop, ticket office, and exhibit hall/gallery.  Off the exhibit hall is a kitchen allowing the hall to host various functions.  Oh, the Center also serves as the depot for the trolley rides.

I'm reviewing the exhibit in the exhibit hall because:
  1. It is very well done
  2. On a modest budget
  3. Focuses appropriately on the history of local trolley car systems
  4. Is featured and augmented on the Maine Historical Society's online museum, The Maine Memory Network, and thus it teaches more than those who visit the exhibit

The Exibit

The exhibit consists of panels on the walls of the nearly square room plus a controlled number of supporting artifacts.  Below are two of the panels.

Next are two of the pictures with captions.

The exhibit's web page on The Maine Memory Network is:

The exhibit is an excellent augmentation to the museum.  I learned from it.  It reflects well the efforts of many people.  I welcome their comment and corrections.
