VERY interesting. A milk tank truck that doubled as a passenger carrier! We thought this would be a 1.5hrs and gone. Ended up staying 4.5 hrs (and could have stayed longer). Only good if you like learning things and seeing historical things.

Excellent tour conducted by Don. Very informative. Small museum in the former factory where they made Mack trucks. Interesting history of the Mack family. A little hard to find. So follow their directions on the website.

The Mack Truck Museum is definitely not a "walk to" location. We are locals and still needed to use our navigation system (in our private vehicle) to reach this location. The tour was well worth the trip for our group.

When I went in March there was no fee. They did say they would be charging at some point... It was worth going though, I would have paid to get in. :)
