The Antique Automobile Club of America Museum displays vintage automobiles in unique scenes and settings! Visitors can stroll through eight decades in time while traveling from New York to San Francisco. It’s a trip down memory lane as you recall the cars your grandparents or parents drove as well as those from your early driving days.
The Museum recently completed an extensive enhancement to our 1920’s scene. This area has been adorned with several panoramic views of downtown Hershey in the 1920’s. These paintings will take you back to a simpler time, where you can almost hear the sounds of the early city. This artwork was commissioned by the Museum with artist David Naydock, a resident of Pottsville, PA.
The Cammack Gallery features several special exhibitions each year. Changing exhibitions focus on specific manufacturers, vehicle types, and historical themes.
Continue your journey on the Museum’s Lower Level with a tour of the Museum of Bus Transportation—the largest collection of buses on display under one roof in the United States! A dozen buses and an illustrated timeline trace the history of bus transportation—from the days of crank starts and wicker seats to full-sized motor coaches complete with uniformed hostesses.
The Lower Level also houses a restored Valentine Diner, a Photo Area where you can have your picture taken behind the wheel of a vintage car, and a selection of vehicles from the Museum’s permanent collection.
