America on Wheels is a 48,000-square-foot facility devoted to exhibits about “over the road transportation.” The museum allows visitors to inspect rare and historic vehicles up close, whether it’s a 1915 Model T roadster, an early motorcycle, or rare Mac Truck.
The Mack Truck corporation has a large presence in the Allentown area, and several of their trucks are on loan here (Mack Trucks maintains their own museum nearby, with limited days open, in its old customer testing facility). America on Wheels devotes lots of space to Mack Trucks, including a couple of interactive exhibits where visitors can sit in a driving simulator, or take quizzes.
Aside from the permanent displays here, there is a large section of temporary displays on loan from other museums and private collectors. In 2012 some of those included the 1930 taxi from It’s a Wonderful life and the 1998 VW Bug from The Spy Who Shagged me, among others.
Check out their calendar of events on their website before you go. You never know, you just might see the car or truck from your favorite movie there.
