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.

We spent the day in Allentown today and we went to the America on Wheels Museum, we all thought it was very enjoyable. The layout was really nice and well worth the money. We wanted to give a shout out to a wonderful lady who works there, Ms Jane Grove. She is super knowledgeable about everything to do with the... More

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
