I took my family there 2013. My son, who is a marine, was home for the holiday. We took his 3 year old son to the train display...I did think there would be more displays. However, the amount was adequate for a 3 year. The cars on display are quite interesting. Last year, they did have bring an unwrapped toy... More

The museum is in a nice modern building with plenty of parking. Admission is not bad at $8/adult. The museum itself is small. 2 floors but not a lot on display. The 2nd floor is the exhibit area that changes every 6 months. This month was exotic sports cars. A couple of Lamborghini's a Ferrari, etc. The permanent exhibit is... More

We were experiencing Lehigh University Parents Weekend so we took a ride in the Lehigh Valley. We came upon this museum just off Hamilton / Hanover Blvd in Allentown so we decided to stop in. It is small enough to see the whole museum in a short time and there were many volunteers who were willing to answer our questions.... More

My husband and I are car enthusiasts, and this museum does not disappoint! They have everything from a Model T to muscle cars to odd ones we never heard of. There are toy displays, as well as posters, framed advertisements, license plates and other memorabilia. But it's not just cars -- there are bicycles, motorcycles, a fire truck, Mack tractor... More

We visited the museum this weekend with our teenage sons and had a great time. The exhibits were very interesting and we all learned more about autos, motorcycles, bikes, and more. This place is a real gem and an asset to the Lehigh Valley. The staff was very friendly and informative. We loved the root beer floats and milk shakes... More

We thought your "Orphan Car" display was excellent, except for the fact that you had 2 Pontiacs, but no Crosley Cars. These were manufactured from 1939 to 1952, in Indiana, with the home office in Cincinnati,Ohio. They were small economy cars built for limited income family's, so that they could afford a "new" car. Your museum is a great addition... More

This is a fairly small museum but has a little something for everyone. They have a nice collection of pedal cars for the kids. There is an interesting diorama of a 1940's garage. Their Indianapolis racecar collection is something I haven't seen accept at larger venues. They cover auto restorations including a before and after example. They even have a... More

America on wheels museum was a pleasant surprise. I found them on the Inter-net while looking for car museums. It was worth the trip from NC ! Their presentations & information on different modes of transportation was excellant. To top it off it was free for seniors today :)

We live in the Allentown area, and take our out of town guest to America On Wheels Museum. We always find that there is some new exhibit there, as well as the old standards. We enjoy both the new and the old exhibits.

If you're a car, motorcycle, truck or bicycle fan, you'll love this place. Takes about an hour to see but you could spend a lot longer if you want to.
