My brother, sisters, and I took the drive down from Pocono Downs to check this place out as we were having our annual siblings weekend. We were very impressed by the exhibits which were informative, interesting, unique, and colorful. There were cars of all types from way back when to modern race cars. There was a whole section on Mack... More

We went on New Year's Eve and luckily got there early enough not knowing they wre closing early, so be sure to check their hours when you go. We spent about 2 hours here. The staff was very friendly and helpful if you had questions on the displays. Hubby and I love cars, so this was right up our alley... More

Had to check this place out while in town. You pay only $7-10 depending on your age. Not only do they have old cars, but also big trucks, peddle cars, bicycles, go-carts, motorcycles, model trains and a full size service station inside along with much more memorabilia. There is a 50s style cafe on site, but was closed when we... More

We bought a Groupon which was very reasonable. We visited this weekend & there was a seasonal train display upstairs, which was outstanding. The cars and trucks are beautiful..It is a small museum, well designed & laid out. Good for spending an hour or two. The Hubcap Cafe is really 50's & can be rented for special occasions. They have...

Visiting for first time before Christmas holiday we had the good fortune to have the train display operating since a volunteer was present at time when it normally is not scheduled. Granddaughters (3 girls) loved all the displays. Very enjoyable afternoon.

Seeing the old cars and the train displays brought back memories for us. The displays were very nice, the cars were beautiful. And it was informative, too.

I've been to this museum several times, with my kids, adult friends and my brother. Some of the exhibits stay the same, but many change. no matter who I bring there, everyone has a great time! I'll definitely be back! Before you go, check out Groupon.....there is often discount tickets available.

I go to this gem every few months - to see the changing exhibits. Like the Allentown Art Museum, certain exhibits stay the same, but the changes here are very nice. A noteworthy room is where they show an unrestored car - and what it looks like when totally restored. I've never eaten in the snack bar, but the retro... More

we took our grandkids on Sunday when kids go free and get free ice cream sundaes after wards. The place is so nice. Totally wheel chair accessible. Very clean. Everyone was very friendly!
