“Blast from the Past !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

If you love oldies (50's-60's) you will LOVE this place. It is awesome the way it is set up with all antiques. Looks like an old malt shop. Upstairs and on the main level. LOTS to look at...I go there every year when I am in Pottsville for the Car Show/Cruise.

“Jerry's - Enjoyable”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

A great place to revisit life in the past, particularly if you're a car nut. Lots of pristine, refurbished vehicles and memorabilia (sp?). Only open certain times and days. Best to go in spring or fall since not air conditioned in keeping with the past. Enjoy!

“Back in time...”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

You'll love this little museum which has something for everyone who every lived or wish they lived during the 50's and 60's. We took the advise of a prior reviewer and went on a cool day. Very entertaining and very reasonable. They do give a AAA discount. You'll see everything from cars to kitchen tables, garage tools to kitchen utensils. A real gem! May not be the place for small kids unless you have a hand on them - lots of stuff within easy reach. Don't forget to look up - they have stuff right up to the ceiling on the second floor!

“Awesome !!!!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

What a wonderful place to visit. It is so neat to see all the memorabilia from cars to soda fountain shops. You can't take it all in there is so much to look at. I was like a little girl in a candy shop. I love old cars and 50's and antiques of all kinds. It was amazing, I will go back to visit. And BEST of all it is VERY reasonable pricing. Would recomend to any car or 50's enthusiast.

“A very interesting trip back in time.”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

A small museum located in downtown Pottsville in an old Studebaker dealership, Jerry's presents an outstanding collection of 50's memorabilia. Starting with an automobile theme, there are about 10 antique cars and trucks preserved, including several Studebakers, a DeSoto convertible and others. In addition there are lots of auto parts and artifacts ondisplay. Also, there are mock-ups of 50's era soda shops, and bandstand items including instruments and amplifiers, as well as older tools, furniture, sewing machines. Also included are displays of older clothing, household appliances, etc. For a very enjoyable trip back in time, this is an excellent way to spend an hour or two. Lots of nostalgia for a few dollars well spent.
