This museum many locals do not even know about. Very good history of Mack Trucks with many exhibits to view. Guide was very knowledgeable and provided good information. I will return to this museum again. It is also free admission.

I was passing through so I made a stop. The tour started late, but it was very informative. Don was the tour guide, and he was great. The downside is that they are not open weekends, but they are open on the lesser holidays.

What more can you ask? A brand new facility with crackerjack guides who know everything there is to know about Mack Trucks. And it's free! They also have a nice gift shop.

They focus on Mack and Brockway but if you are a fan of big rigs this is a must visit location. AND IT'S FREE!!!

Not sure what to expect here but it was very interesting and fun. Kids loved being able to see inside big trucks. Lots of items to learn about. Lots of older vehicles to look at and admire. Great place to go especially if you're local.

Lots of Mack memorabilia from Jack Mack's start in Brooklyn to today. A historical timeline with pictures. Many rare and expertly restored vehicles. One Mack truck had a chain drive, another had a jet engine. Nice gift shop.
