Hershey, PA - September 12th marked the opening of the Museum's fall exhibits. Th Museum is partnering with the Horseless Carriage Club of America and the Road Map Collectors Association to present two unique gallery displays. Also, "Yeah, It's Got a Hemi" is now open as our featured exhibition, coupled with "Minibike Mania" in the lower level gallery. With COVID-19 guidelines in place and social distancing, the Museum is a safe and welcoming environment. The exhibits are in place through April 2021.
"Yeah, It's Got a Hemi!" More than 35 Hemis on display
The Hemi exhibit, guest curated by museum volunteer Bill Sangrey, is likely the most comprehensive public exhibition of "Hemi-power" ever assembled. Bill's efforts were instrumental in tracking down seminal examples from across the country. Those highlighted below are a few of the vehicles displayed at the Museum.
Minibike Mania - The fun and freedom of minibikes
Whether young or old, a minibike placed the freedom and luxury of personal motorized transport into the hands of the rider. The Museum takes visitors on a walk through time that shows how minibikes emerged in the 1940s and 1950s, flourished in the 1960s and 1970s, and remains motorized fun for the youthful-minded of all ages! Explore more than two dozen examples of these miniature motorbikes during this exhibit.
"Yes, We Drive These Cars!" - Presented by the Horseless Carriage Club of America
As generations have passed, these vehicles have endured, and they're still rolling. In the Williams-Clyne Showroom, see vintage cars that remain roadworthy, still turning heads, and a joy to drive. Early signage, artifacts, and video presentations tell the stories of these cars and their adventures.
"Look … They Gave Me a Map!"- The Enduring Appeal of Road Maps
Years ago, gas and oil companies used road maps to promote their brands and to assist the traveling public. Billions of road maps were given out at gas and service stations. The “Look … They Gave Me a Map!” exhibit, guest curated by the Road Map Collectors Association, harkens back to days gone by. The exhibit presents the artistry, destination images, and geographic highlights that made maps glove box-sized resources for travelers.
