Memories

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

What a great place!! A group went after hours and the gift shop was closed. But it was very interesting! I want to go back with the kids (and my dad)!

They have a vintage Hupp which there are only 5 or 6 left in existence. There current exhibit is "Performance... More

When you walk in ask about the history of the building, and you may be surprised to learn its origins. There were exhibits for all ages, and staff very willing to speak with you about all of them.
