Help Keep Us on the Road!

$850 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 44 months


Since opening in April 2008 on the site of the former Arbogast and Bastian meatpacking plant at Front and Hamilton streets in Allentown, America On Wheels  has been the keystone to the city’s Lehigh Riverfront redevelopment efforts. 

Our visitors have enjoyed exhibits such as the historic Mack Trucks in the South Gallery; the “History of Transportation” in the North Gallery and “Gettin' the Job Done - Evolution of the Pickup Truck" now on display in our Revolving Gallery. Exceptional past exhibits have included “The Bulgari Collection – Automobiles of Elegance,” “Muscle Cars” and “Dragsters of the Northeast.”  

Over the past seven years America On Wheels has attracted nearly 175,000 visitors to the city, which has a positive impact on the city’s economy.  As the Lehigh River waterfront undergoes the development that will transform it to an exciting destination, the museum has already established itself as a desirable cultural attraction. It anchors the southern end of this project to provide a uniquely entertaining and educational start to a day’s activities for the many individuals who will live, work and visit the waterfront.

We offer educational and public events in the Auto Art Gallery and visitors can end their tour with delicious ice cream sodas and sundaes in the Hub Cap Café, an authentic soda fountain relocated from a 1950s Indiana pharmacy.

America On Wheels  is more than a place where people can gather to learn, have fun and celebrate – first hand – America’s love affair with the automobile and other means of transportation.  It is, like all museums, a community treasure that provides a welcoming environment for entertainment and a resource for life-long learners. The cars and trucks we display for your enjoyment have touched all our lives and we are proud to employ them to educate all who visit.  

Please help us keep this wonderful attraction operating until the riverfront development is realized. Thank you for your support.

(Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated)

***Any and all donations made go to AOW. Linda is the Executive Director of the museum.***

This is one of the best transportation museums, hands down. It's very family friendly, very informative and is always a learning experience. Run by passionate individuals and sustained by volunteers, AOW is a vital asset to Allentown's downtown revival. Please help out any way you can!
