“Great way to spend a few hours.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

If you like cars and trucks then this is a great place to go for a few hours. The exhibits are engaging. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You will definitely learn something. And they have done a nice job of integrating local and PA businesses (i.e. history, contributions to exhibits, etc.). Great for adults and kids.

“Heater broke”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Went there with my son on 2/10/13 . We were so cold that we couldn't stop to read the plaques describing the cars . We were told the furnace was broke , ok but how about free hot chocolate for kids or something . The staff was wearing hat, gloves, winter coats . In and out about 30 minutes to warm up in the car . Didn't enjoy our time there .

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Nice permanent and changing displays of cars and other modes of transportation and items associated with them. Expected it to be larger and have more displays, but what they have is all interesting. It is worth the stop if you are in Allentown.

“Neat place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Nice displays but I wish there was more room for cars. They have rotating exhibits so that's nice. Good family destination. Also have a cool old fashioned ice cream room upstairs for events, parties.

“Interesting Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Not very big, but was interesting and the cost to get in wasn't too bad. There isn't much else around.
