Beautiful building, with the cars, motorcycles and buses displayed in nicely done scenarios relative to their time in history. Old time service station, drive-in movie, diner, etc. Great collection of seriously beautiful original and restored vehicles. Small kids area and a vend-o-teria available as well.They were setting up a huge Christmas display with model trains, etc while were there... bet it will be real nice
Small discount for AAA.

Almost didn't go as time was getting short to head home, but very glad we stopped! Great collection of antique and unusual cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles and automotive memorabilia. We had just visited Hershey's Chocolate World and pulled up to the museum to be greeted by the Hershey Kissmobile. As others have said, great displays well presented.

Stopped in during the annual antique car event at Hersey. The Museum is small, but the exhibits of rare and important cars are well structured and placed in period dioramas, in fact the gas station setting with the air pressure bell was a great touch.

The AACA Museum is a must-see for any car enthusiast. The cars are displayed in beautiful era appropriate settings. There are antique busses downstairs. A great mix of American cars from the 1900s to the 80s.

Nothing makes a visit to a museum better than having docents bring the displays to life for the visitors. The AACA Museum does that and more. The cars, buses, bikes, motorcycles and toys were great. The docents though made all the difference. They actually approached us and offered to take us on a tour of the museum. They offered details and stories that we never would have received otherwise. Do not be afraid of bringing children here. There are plenty of bikes, toys, etc interspersed with the cars to keep kids interested..and you too. Allow 2 hours to see everything; more if you like to really look at things.
