Lots to see, hands on for the kids, very interesting and informative. They cover so much stuff, motorcycles, cars, trucks, everything you can imagine on wheels. It's a nice sized museum and lots of things for the kids to do with photo ops and a nice little gift shop. The have a section upstairs that is an exhibit that changes,... More

It was snowing and we wanted to find an indoor activity. Glad we found America on Wheels. From antique to classic to exotic cars, they have it all. Throughout the museum, there are gentlemen who love nothing more than to talk about the cars and the history. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Great place to go if you really love cars. Mostly antique. But its very interesting place to go if you want to learn the history of cars.

I like that they're constantly changing the exhibit several times a year otherwise it would be boring. I've attended several fundraisers at America on Wheels that were a blast!

I'd rate this museum a "Good," but it's not an option; my son and I have been to other antique car museums which have housed many more cars and vintage vehicles, but I thought that the truck exhibit in this museum was very interesting and unique. Regarding the cars, there is a sampling from each vintage era, but there are... More

We went to the museum as part of a charity event and didn't expect too much and really enjoyed it. Especially the room where they explain how they rehabilitate the old cars. The cafe was really near too. Easy parking and friendly staff.

A great under the radar museum that has quite the niche of a collection of vintage vehicles. Really interesting exhibits that are curated in a very nice way, putting them in context while preserving the integrity of the cars or bikes or even Mack trucks. Actually there is an entire room dedicated to Mack trucks-they are truly part of the... More

Our family (with 2 teenage boys) went to this museum over the Christmas holiday break. 2 floors of building with easy accessibility and nice flow of exhibits. Lots of vintage vehicles (some restored and some not) and transportation historical information to see, read, and enjoy. Special (for the holidays) train exhibit and guitar exhibit were fun to see. Admission under... More

I have been here at least twice, they have a standard museum experience, and sometime there are special exhibits. They are all very nicely done and admission is inexpensive. It is seldom very busy so it can be a really nice experience, you can take your time and browse through at a leisurely pace.

The museum has a nice collection of vehicles. Cars, trucks (Macs!) and other. They had a room with sportscars (which was not part of the usual collection) There is also a room which is dedicated to the restauration process. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Worth a visit!!
