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!!

We are members of AOW, and we love visiting several times per year whenever they change the upstairs feature exhibit. They have had great themed exhibits such as "woodies" last summer and the current "supercars and guitars." They, also have special invitational events for members like last night's gala, which featured wines, catered food from several area restaurants, and live... More

This is a tiny museum for its type, as you'd expect for its location, and thus it's an intersting place to spend a few hours if you're into transportation history. A few of the exhibits,notably the pedal cars and the temporary display of exotic cars are quite good. The balance of the museum is rather dull, and the exhibit placards... More

This museum in Allentown is worth a look if you are in the local area and at $8 per adult is very good value indeed. America On Wheels is a small museum which surprisingly though holds a lot of vehicles. It is arranged over 2 floors and will keep you entertained for a couple of hours if you are interested... More
