Exhibits:

Our Cammack Tucker Gallery showcases the world's largest collection of Tucker Automobiles, experimental engines and other artifacts.

*"It’s a Small World: Micro & Mini Cars"

November 21 - April 22, 2016

“Awww…it’s so cute!” If you own a Corvette or a pickup truck, this is the last thing you want to hear someone say about your ride. But like puppies, kittens, bite-sized desserts and other diminutive obsessions, micro- and mini-cars often elicit this same response.

*"Pinstriping & Automotive Art by HotRod Jen"

This exhibit features a variety of art using pinstriping techniques and her love of photography.

*"Steampunk Exhibit Preview"

June 10 – November 6, 2016

A Steampunk display with reflection on recycled gears and parts commonly found in the automotive industry repurposed into both an artistic and functional form.

*"Tucker Automobiles: The Cammack Collection"

The AACA Museum has completed phase 1 on a most meaningful phase of its development – the renovation of the existing 5,200 square foot Cammack Gallery creating an unparalleled exhibit: the world’s largest and best-known collection of Tucker 48 automobiles, engines, mechanicals and automobile from Tucker historian and collector David Cammack. This permanent, interactive and educational exhibit involves visitors in the compelling story of the development of these historic vehicles and dynamically displays their unique and advanced features. Beyond the cars, we’ve chronicled Preston Tucker’s vision, determination and struggles that are so much a part of the marque’s history.

*"Whitney Houston’s 1986 Rolls Royce Silver Spur factory Limousine"

An anonymous collector has donated a 1986 Rolls Royce Silver Spur factory Limousine which was once owned by famed music icon, the late Whitney Houston. Houston, one of the most successful singers of all time and often referred to as “The Rolls-Royce of soul voices," purchased this car through her publishing.

*“From Roads to Rails” Custom Model Train Display:

A custom train display continues at the Antique Auto Museum at Hershey. It's yet another opportunity to cruise through time—on rails—at the AACA Museum during the holiday season. New features for this year now include an interactive Car Wash in addition to the operating Drive In Theatre and Saw Mill/Lumber Yard. Travel back in time as these O-gauge locomotives take you to “Tuckerville,” the Museum’s vision of small-town America in the 1950s.
