The National Capital Trolley Museum (NCTM) is a nonprofit organization that operates historic trolleys (or trams) for the public on a regular schedule. NCTM ran its first streetcar in October 1969, and since then the museum has operated consistently over its one-mile line. In the winter of 2008–2009, the Museum moved into three new buildings: a visitors' center, a display building for the streetcars, and a streetcar storage-and-maintenance building.

The collection includes streetcars from pre-1900, 1912, 1918 and later.
