The Transit Museum, located in the SEPTA's headquarters, is more or less an exhibit that traces the history of Philadelphia's public transit system. There's an old trolley car that has been restored in the lobby, which is a great piece of interactive history. The exhibit also includes photographs and other items for viewing. If you are especially smitten by public transportation, or your kids love big machinery, this is a quick and easy stop.
