If you are into classic cars and history you have come to the right place. Great place and never crowded or any lines. Little hidden gem that more people should go see.

A great place for all ages. You can see things from the 1800's to the present. Bikes, motorcycles, carriages, all types of cars, trucks and a complete '50's diner. They have a revolving exhibit which right now is performance cars over the last century. A car or two from each decade. A lot of very rare vehicles. There is a... More

Very nice museum, we spent about 2 hours there. Lots of American made cars and motorcycles in nice displays. Small gift shop and cute 1950's style snack bar.

It was a hot day during our visit to Allentown, and we decided that we needed a place to visit that would give us some time in air conditioning, and this place fit the bill! Kids 5 and under were free, which worked for us, and kids 5-16 are only $5. Adults are normally $10 each, but we found a... More

The museum overall feels a bit dated but we enjoyed the visit and it was fun connecting with my Dad about cars. Learned about rumble seats and back seats with curtains. Reminisced about his first mustang. If you find yourself in Allentown with a quiet afternoon, it's interesting but unless you are a car or truck nut, you shouldn't go... More

But it not only has cars but bicycles, and trucks.In addition, there are some hands on things for the kids . There is also cute room upstairs that can be rented for birthday... More

I took my favorite uncle to this museum because he's loved cars since he was a young boy. As we stood right inside upon entry, we were immediately taken by the old truck with brass fixtures and vintage cars, brilliantly polished and close enough to touch. (We didn't!) Then one of the volunteers approached us and began chatting with my... More

I've visited several times, and each time find interesting displays of beautiful cars. I like the fact that they rotate different cars on a regular basis. This is an often forgotten jewel of Allentown.

Has a little of everything, good displays of automobiles of all ages, motorcycles, bicycles, and assorted "stuff". Nice library of reference materials. Excellent example of a restoration before and after, that gives you a good idea of the work involved. Nice gift shop. Items on display are in great shape. Enough to drool over.... Old soda shop display. Just very... More
