The museum is an excellent addition to a trip to Hershey but may not be of interest to children. Count on spending 2- 2.5 hours to view all 3 levels and possibly watch a video if one is being shown. We watched an excellent video on Packard automobiles. The displays are themed for each time period and the cars, buses, and motorcycles are beautifully presented. The museum website is quite good and lists a number of the vehicles in the collection. The website accurately depicts what you will see. Do chat up any of the volunteers who are on site as the have lots of additional bits of info. on each exhibit. As a car guy, I was in seventh heaven, but my wife also found the displays to be enjoyable and was very impressed with the quality of the exhibits as well.

We enjoyed the layout of the museum the cars were great. The only thing was that you couldn't see in the buses.

There are three floors of cars and trucks at the AACA Museum. The collection begins with early horseless carriages, and continues through to more recent vehicles. Along with the autos, there are many other related historical items.

On the main floor, the autos are put in large scale diaramas, with additional items making a great backdrop. On the lower floor, the exhibits change every so often.

Boundaries between walkways and vehicles are minimal, so be careful not to let kids wander in and touch the vehicles.

Attended with hubby the car nut. Was a great way to spend the afternoon. Great displays, convenient location, reasonable admission. His only gripe, no muscle cars from the 60's and 70's. If you are a car enthusiast, or even if not and just looking for a break from the amusements and shopping, enjoy this beautiful place.

My husband and I visited the museum and we loved the experience. He's a car lover, while I am not. But we both found the visit to be thoroughly fun and enriching. The restoration of these vehicles are amazing. It's really enjoyable for everyone of all ages, car enthusiasts or not. These are things people are not accustomed to seeing everyday, so it's really a novel attraction that should not be passed up.

You get to see the changes that took place over the many years. There's a lot of history to learn. There were antique cars, motorcycles, buses, and dairy trucks in this collection of vehicles. The displays were spread throughout two spacious floors of the building. Fun sceneries were a part of the exhibit - there were: a fake gas station and store, movie drive-in, bus stop, and diner. Some of the makes featured are Ford, Cadillac, Buick, and Harley Davidson.
