I took a motorcoach group to visit this museum after our train ride on the Colebrookdale RR for lunch. What a nice museum - just 3 min ride from the RR - they had a wonderful selection of vehicles... more »
An amazing collection of a variety of motor vehicles, most of them in pristine/restored condition. We've already recommended friends visit here when they are in the area for the annual antique auto show in Hershey. My favorite was what looked like a UPS truck but was outfitted to be a family camper! We were really surprised to see how many of the vehicles or their parts were made in Pennsylvania.
We visited on Saturday, it was a very nice museum and the kids loved it especially sitting in the diner on a stool watching the video of how it was moved or sitting in the booths together. Some other highlights were them seeing the old pa license plates, trying to ride the bicycle, watching the blacksmith's upstairs making things, and of course all of the fantastic old cars. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
