It is a hidden gem in Allentown. Great displays of cars. The exhibits change every 6 months. The staff is very freindly and knowledgable. The museum has two floors of displays. The top floor is where the current display is. They also offer a body shop that shows how cars were restored. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

We spent a few hours visiting this automotive museum a few months ago. Very happy we did. The displays are rotated often so you will see new displays if you return every so often. You can get on their mail list and they will let you know when they change displays and what is new to the museum. Reasonably prices.... More

My wife and I on vacation decided to go visit the America on Wheels Auto Museum. When we got there the neighborhood around it needs to be seriously upgraded. The museum itself is in a beautiful building. lots of nice antique cars and interesting information. They need to grow and get some more activities but at the $10 entry fee,... More

So long a vacant lot and now a... More

Both the grownups and teenagers in our group were absolutely delighted with this display of means of transportation. We loved all the old cars that were there on permanent display as well as all the motorcycles. The milkshakes at the soda fountain were also a big hit.
