We were absolutely surprised by this museum. I was expecting just a few cars sitting around that would be fun to look at but instead we were treated to a very new and modern building with absolutely gorgeous cars set in very realistic mock settings. We visited a car museum in Greenwich NY a couple of years ago which was... More

I've been here twice with visitors to Allentown. They and I have loved it both times. Great exhibits, very impressive. The first time the major exhibit was very early cars; the second time, cars of the 1950s. But in addition to the major exhibit, there are other exhibits showcasing cars of different eras and other vehicles such as Mack trucks... More

All I can say is WOW ! What a wonderful museum. All the displays of cars, trucks, pedal cars, bicycles, and motorcycles are well laid out and not congested making it a very relaxing visit. We really enjoyed the "Restoration Shop" as it adds another dimension that we have never seen in other Auto Museums. The photos also add tremendously... More

We visited America on Wheels several times and now have become Members with unlimited visits for an annual fee. The museum is spotless and all the staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable. They hold some special events from time to time which would be a very good time to visit. There is a cafe, but we did not indulge.

This is a great Museum dedicated to transportation. They have some interesting static displays including early Electric Cars, and a short history of Mack Trucks. Other displays rotate in and out, so,you can visit repeatedly and be sure to see now displays. They have a completely restored 1950's Cafe called the Hubcap cafe with food service of the period.

This museum is in a somewhat unlikely location near the soon-to-be developed Lehigh River waterfront in a formerly industrial area of Allentown. The surprise for automotive enthusiasts is not just the variety and the quality of the vehicles on display, but the also the design of the exhibits spaces as well. In addition to the permanent collection, there are changing... More

This museum of classic cars is housed in the most spectacular and modern of buildings, including two-story high rooms, plenty of truck lovers (Mack) exhibits, plus very early car examples. It's the real thing and won't break the bank.

What a great museum! It mirrored something out of the smithsonian. Museum very clean and well put together. Staff extremely friendly and anxious to share stories. Price was far lower than they could have charged. A hidden gem, right here in our area.
