“A Great Museum in a Small Package”

Swigart Auto Museum
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in Huntingdon
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Swigart Museum is a smaller auto museum in Central PA. What it lacks in square footage it makes up for in the quality of the cars displayed. There are truly unique cars in the collection like Brewster, Brush, and early brasss. My favorite cars displayed are the two Tuckers. With only 48 known to exist, this museum has 2 of them; the prototype and car #13. Both cars are in great condition.
The two items (other than the Tuckers...) that set this museum apart were the quality of the descriptions provided on the cars, and secondly the service provided by Duane, the docent. Duane must truly enjoy what he does and is a real asset to the museum. While I consider myself fairly well informed on antique autos, I picked up some new information that I really enjoyed.
The Swigart Museum in located in a beautiful area of central PA. If traveling to or from Hershey or Carlisle this would be a nice stop along the way.

Very cool cars, two Tuckers! Worth the stop and they let active military in for free. If you love cars stop.

Great way to spend a few hours if you're in the area visiting Raystown Lake. In addition to antique cars, they also have a small collection of vintage toys which was fun for my kids to check out and of course there is a small gift shop. Since we live so close, we are able to visit whenever they are having a car show which makes each trip to the museum different.

We visited during their car show and it was quite an experience. There are many eras represented and brought back memories of previous visits.
