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.

Beautiful, retro and peaceful. Most people have no idea of this wonderful place hidden in downtown Allentown.

For the $8 to get in I believe this was good deal. Only took us about 45 minutes to go through it all though. Probably an hour or more if you are a real true avid car lover.

A cool little gem in downtown Allentown, this museum was a pleasant surprise with vintage vehicles of every description. The displays are well done and more plentiful than you would expect. There's everything from antique bikes to WWII motorcycles, to Mack trucks and even an amphibious car! Admission is extremely reasonable and if you are a AAA member, you get... More

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
