Picture yourself on a cross-country trip through the last 100 years, decade by decade, from New York City to San Francisco, featuring beautifully-restored and original automobiles and antique buses! Remember when gas was only 19 cents a gallon...those hot summer nights at the drive-in...or those burgers at the local diner? A walk through galleries becomes a trip down memory lane. In May 2007, AutoWeek magazine named The AACA Museum at Hershey one of the top 16 auto museums in the world! The unique themed displays bring back nostalgic moments for everyone, even if you're not an antique car enthusiast.

Looking for the limelight? Be sure to see the Lakeland bus used in the Academy Award-winning movie Forrest Gump. Or if spy movies are more your style, enjoy several cars from the 1930s-1950s used in "The Good Shepherd" movie. See the 1926 Pierce Arrow touring sedan that chauffeured stars from Paramount Studios to their homes in the Hollywood Hills during the 1920s.
