This museum is celebrating its 5th anniversary and deserves all the positive reviews it gets. It is dedicated to any vehicles with wheels, motorized or not. They have interesting exhibits on different models of cars including those that ran on steam; electric cars; an exhibit on hot rods and a section dedicated to Mack Trucks, a company that started in Allentown--you can even sit behind the steering wheel and image that you are driving a large Mack truck. The museum has a complete garage displayed from a nearby town. There are many car models,both old and new, incluing an early Model T and a Hupmobile. In some areas there are exhibits on historical roads, such as Route 66 and the PA Turnpike. The current exhibit that was being set up when we were there is on "Woodies" old station wagons with wood paneling on the sides--a interesting part of automobile history.
The museum has a cafe with an old soda fountain and counter, complete with soda fountain counter stools and working juke boxes playing old songs. The cafe is only open on certain days during the year--check in advance if it is open.
This modern museum is on Front St., just north of Hamilton, the main street in the center of Allentown. It is closed on Mondays. The museum is free to seniors on the first Thurday each month and is part of the North American Reciprocal Museums, so membership in one of those museums allows for free admission..
