This place is OK. Thought it would be more like the Corvette museum. We went through it pretty quick. Wish there was more to see. I am not into older cars though. My friend thought it was good.

AWE-INSPIRING MUSEUM Very pleasantly surprised of all th exhibits. Could not believe there were 2 floors of all types of over the road type vehicles. They did a fantastic job displaying local businesses vehicles, even had a large display of MACK TRUCKS that are manufactured in the Lehigh Valley. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. THIS MUSEUM IS A... More

Well done display of automotive history. A way to spend an enjoyable couple of hours if you're in the area. Great for car enthusiasts, but I don't think it's especially young child friendly.

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.

I enjoy seeing the old style cars. Therefore, I stopped by this place. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Oh, there are many cars. Great place.
