From the oldest car made in the U.S. to the newest Lamborghini Gallardo and McLaren MP4-12C, this museum is loaded with the coolest things. This and the AACA Museum in Hershey are both great place to visit if you like cars.

We were looking for a museum to hit in the Allentown area and this was a pleasant surprise. The museum is not big, but they have made the most of the two floors without it feeling cluttered or cramped. We appreciated the friendliness of all the docents who volunteer there. There are a variety of displays here, including an old-time... More

We were in Allentown on business for a second time and had an itch to explore. Tripadvisor recommended this museum and we were not disappointed. There are a variety of vehicles in the museum and many of the exhibits rotate seasonally. Our favorite exhibits were the Mack truck exhibit and the oldies but goodies that rotate. This is a serious... More

Fun museum to spend an hour or two. It has a rotating display upstairs which featured the "woodies" when I was there. Great to see the vehicles as all were in impeccable condition. Another favorite was the simulated mechanics garage complete with mechanic, vehicle being serviced and gas pumps. Great spot to grab some unique pictures. Good for kids as... More

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.
