Absolutely fascinating display of floors of beautifully preserved vintage vehicles. We adults loved it, but so did our grandchildren who wandered for hours looking at cars they could only dream of! Anyone living or visiting in the area should make a point of visiting this extremely well done museum.

Was in the area and able to visit this great museum. Great volunteers! Very interesting, well displayed exhibits, many related to Mack Trucks. Even riding out the tornado alert did not detract from our visit!

I have always appreciated the classic cars and this Museum has a huge selection of all types of cars. Sport , antique and one of a kinds. Visit at you own pace. No rush. There are also motorcycles and trucks.they go over the history of the vehicle and have pictures to go along with it.

I love to see the selection of cars from the 1920 through the 70's. They have a nice gift shop and a theater. Great place to take the kids on a rainy weekend.

Great place hidden in Allentown,PA. This museum just doesn't have a Mack truck display. There are other displays as well. I enjoy seeing the different displays that change every 6 months. I usually go on weekdays. The staff is always friendly and helpful if you have any questions. The place is kept very clean. The new displays always get put... More

Terrific for car lovers (well any vehicle really). Not enough interactive stuff to keep kids occupied for a long time, but certainly enjoyable for an hour or so.

Went to America on Wheels for a get together with our financial advisor. It was like an open house they had. It was our first time there. My husband is a car fanatic and absolutely loved it. Every 3 months (i think 3) they change the cars on the 2nd floor. The displays are beautiful. They have a restaraunt on... More

My family enjoys cars so I thought it would be great to take them here. I loved the history and they layout. Wish it was bigger. The price is a little much I feel for here, but sometimes coupons are available. Loved the old cars, and the big trucks, and the other interactives they have. Such as bulldog contests and... More

I bring my three year old grandson here regularly as he loves anything on wheels. Most of all he LOVES driving the Big Mac truck. We come on weekdays and spend at least an hour driving in the simulator. They should have more simulator type of exhibits as kids just love them.
