The Mack Truck Museum is located in an out-of-the-way site; but truly well-worth seeking out and exploring. The building is new, clean and modern. Parking is free and ample. Upon entering, we were greeted by a lovely receptionist. Admission is free. The Mack Truck experience began with a short movie in a small theater, which then led to an open area of vintage trucks from the earliest days of trucking. There, we met our guide, who was a retired Mack employee.

What an amazing, all-inclusive museum about all-things Lehigh Valley! Visited Allentown for the first time in 20+ years and this was a one-stop trip down memory lane. From photographs to forgotten relics, from the special Lincoln exhibit to the giant book sale, this was a highlight of my trip. The staff is incredibly welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The museum is easy to navigate and fun to explore.

There are many things that go on here. Often, there are historical events that center around the Liberty Bell and all the forefathers / military men of that time. During the Christmas Season, a character named Pip the Mouse is featured in a Holiday Play (one that started at the Allentown Hess' Store many years ago). After 'The Mouse before Christmas' show, the kids are treated to punch and Christmas cookies. Pip makes his rounds and greets everyone there !!
