Opened year round to experience the wonder of each season and the beauty of nature as it happens. It brings out the photographer in all of us.

Mack Truck Plant and Museum

Mack Truck Plant and Museum

The Mack Trucks Historical Museum is the home of historical documents and artifacts from Mack’s long and storied history as the leading American truck manufacturer and world-renowned brand name.  With more than 80,000 photos on file along with it’s exhibits, this museum would make anyone nostalgic.

Among the antiques  in the Museum’s collection is one of the original sightseeing buses built by Jack and Augustus Mack. The gas-operated, open-air bus carried up to 26 tourists at a time around the streets and sights of Chicago in the summer and New Orleans in the winter for 25 years before returning to Mack as the anchor of its antique truck collection.

Also in the collection is a 1911 Mack Jr. that shared the streets with horse-drawn wagons as it made it’s rounds delivering dry goods and produce. It’s the final truck design attributed to the Mack brothers before they sold their company to investors in 1911.

If you were to come across an old AB truck under a tarp in a barn, there was a record made when it was built. The company’s been doing it for every chassis manufactured since 1905, and except for a few rare cases, all those records are filed here.
