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

A friend and I stopped here on our way from New Jersey to Harrisburg. Nice museum with a good selection of old cars. Nice exhibit showing an old gas station/repair shop like they were when I was a boy. Their hours/days open vary by time of year so it's best to check americaonwheels.org before planning a visit.

I brought my children here ages 5,7, and 16. My 16 year old loved cars and he thought it was great. My other kids enjoyed it too. The workers are volunteers and are so pleasant.

America on Wheels is a great place for kids and adults alike! We held our son's 6th BD party there and all of the kids had a blast! Planning the party was a breeze with the museum. The staff and volunteers are fantastic-can't say enough about all of them. The party started by the kids going on a tour of... More

Went here on a quick visit in Allentown - my 1 year old likes cars and he loved being able to sit in the Mack truck.

This review is a little outdated, sorry. My family and I went here over Christmas vacation to see the model train exhibit. We were pleasantly surprised with the museum and my son loved the model train exhibit. We had a coupon for admission, which was nice, and the price was very reasonable. We look forward to going back.
