Mark and Jamie are the friendly faces on the Hess Toy Truck Mobile Museum who will guide fans on a toy truck journey through the past 50 years.

The Hess Toy Truck Mobile Museum is full of fun family activities; and the best part is it’s free to all. Inside the Hess Toy Truck Mobile museum, fans of all ages can see the entire collection of holiday trucks since 1964. Also inside, The Hess Toy Truck Mobile museum goers can watch clips from each of the popular commercials with the signature “The Hess Truck’s back and it’s better than ever” song, learn niche facts and even get never–before-seen details about how the trucks are made. Outside of the Hess Truck mobile museum will be an area featuring an activity-rich kids zone, a photo opportunity to put yourself into one of those famous old commercials, a prize wheel and the full arcade of the recent Hess Toy Truck mobile app games.
