“great exhibits”

America On Wheels Museum
Ranked #2 of 42 things to do in Allentown
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I've been here twice with visitors to Allentown. They and I have loved it both times. Great exhibits, very impressive. The first time the major exhibit was very early cars; the second time, cars of the 1950s. But in addition to the major exhibit, there are other exhibits showcasing cars of different eras and other vehicles such as Mack trucks and antique fire engines. Great place for both adults and children.

All I can say is WOW ! What a wonderful museum. All the displays of cars, trucks, pedal cars, bicycles, and motorcycles are well laid out and not congested making it a very relaxing visit. We really enjoyed the "Restoration Shop" as it adds another dimension that we have never seen in other Auto Museums. The photos also add tremendously to the interest. When you walk through the door into the Hubcap Café you certainly are stepping back into time. What a great venue ! This museum is a must visit when in the area.

We visited America on Wheels several times and now have become Members with unlimited visits for an annual fee. The museum is spotless and all the staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable. They hold some special events from time to time which would be a very good time to visit. There is a cafe, but we did not indulge.

We went with our grandson (22 months) who loves cars and wheels. This was a delightful trip down memory lane. The site is clean and well maintained. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. The old cars were some I remember seeing on the roads years ago! It was just .. fun to see this part of American history our grandson and delightful to watch our grandson having so much fun seeing cars everywhere. And some I haven't seen for years.

This is a great Museum dedicated to transportation. They have some interesting static displays including early Electric Cars, and a short history of Mack Trucks. Other displays rotate in and out, so,you can visit repeatedly and be sure to see now displays.
They have a completely restored 1950's Cafe called the Hubcap cafe with food service of the period.
