Cars & Christmas is the annual holiday celebration at the AACA Museum. Decorations adorn the Museum on all levels with dozens of decorated holiday trees, several model train displays, specialty vehicles and more. We also encourage you to donate non-perishable food items or a new unwrapped toy for our food & toy drive so we can all share in giving to others during the holiday season.

The Grinch and Max Scavenger Hunt in the Museum is always a favorite — how many can you find? Sammy the Snowplow will be out front to meed guests as they arrive.

Ernie’s Taxi from the iconic holiday movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” will be on display. This makes a great backdrop for your holiday photos.

This MINI Snowmobile was designed and created in 2003 as part of the Discovery Channel’s “Monster Garage” television program. The show, hosted by custom motorcycle fabricator and owner of West Coast Choppers, Jesse James, features James and his assembly team attempting to modify an everyday production vehicle into a “monster machine” under strict rules that place restrictions on time, budget and parts. James and his team assembled the MINI Snowmobile out of a standard model MINI Cooper Hardtop. Upon completion, James took the MINI Snowmobile to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to race NASCAR legend Richard Petty on a Polaris snowmobile.

The holidays are also about giving back and we’re excited to again be coordinating a food & toy drive here at the AACA Museum beginning November 14th and running through December 30th.

Non-perishable food donations will be distributed via The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that is able to reduce hunger in 27 counties across central Pennsylvania. By working with more than 800 partner agencies they are able to provide food for more than 55,000 people in need every week.

High Priority Items Include: Canned Tuna, Cereal, Macaroni & Cheese, Canned mates and stews, canned soup, peanut butter, canned fruits & vegetables, packaged meals, packaged pasta and rice, canned and dried beans, pure fruit and vegetable juices, baby food, cereal and formula.

Financial contributions will also be accepted. With access to the wholesale distribution market Central PA Food Bank can stretch each dollar you donate. For every $1 donated, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank can provide 6 meals to hungry individuals.

Toys for Tots Toy Drive

Members of the community and visitors to the AACA Museum are encouraged to drop-off new, unwrapped toys in collection boxes positioned in our lobby. Coordinators pick up these toys and store them in central warehouses where the toys are sorted by age and gender. At Christmas, Coordinators, with the assistance of local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies, distribute the toys to the less fortunate children of the community.

We’re looking for new, unwrapped toys for children up to age 16. Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.
