“One of a kind museum.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Certainly of interest to anyone in towing, trucking, or automotive field. They have lots of restored antique tow trucks. Everything from the first ever built to the latest designs. I was particularly impressed by the Wall of the Fallen, a memorial to tow truck operators who lost their lives in the line of duty. The staff was very pleasant and informative.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Took my fiance there since he used to repo cars. Starts with a short film, then lots of cool wreckers. There is one us can sit on & work the lift & lights. Nice to see the wall of the fallen who lost their lives in this industry

“Inexpensive and unusual”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We happened to be listening to a travel book by Bill Geist on our drive down to Chattanooga and he mentioned this museum so we had to go! A fun visit with some trucks to sit in and others to just admire. Fun for kids I think and a fun photo opportunity, both inside and out.They even offer a AAA discount.

“Kids loved the tow truck to play on”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

This is a nice little museum, would like to see it be bigger, they have so many trucks that they barely fit in the space. The kids absolutley loved playing in the "toy" tow truck and being able to operate the boom and make all the lights go on and off.
