2010-08-27A trip to the Antique Auto Museum at Hershey is a journey of discovery and enjoyment for the whole family. The Museum’s highly detailed dioramas present carefully restored vintage vehicles in elaborate scenes that bring the history of the automobile to life. From a tiny machine shop in turn-of-the-century New York to the asphalt apron of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, the Museum’s Sea to Shining Sea exhibit invites the visitor to move through time and space on a tour from the automobile’s blacksmith shop beginnings to a time and place where the car was king.
The journey continues beyond the main exhibit — into a changing exhibit gallery designed to showcase short term displays that range from Model T’s to Muscle Cars.
For children this is the place to get up close and personal with automotive stuff. In the activity room, younger visitors can do a crayon rubbing AACA Museum — Darci Derby Car of an antique license plate and engage in a variety of hands-on projects and activities. At the Photo Stop, kids of all ages can dress up in period clothing and have their picture taken sitting in a car or motorcycle from the Museum’s sit-in fleet.
