8/16/15: The Antique Automobile Club of America Museum Family Fun

While we were in Hershey, Pennsylvania we also got to experience The Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum!  The museum is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution,  You can explore all types of vehicles from the 1890s through the 1980s.
As soon as we arrived I knew this would be a place that the kids would like.  Of course I think my husband liked it most of all of us.
The Hershey's Kiss Mobile was right out front which was really cool to see.
There are so many awesome cars to see there.  The nice thing is that there are volunteers all through the museum for questions and to explain more about what you are seeing.
The settings are very elaborate.
You can walk through at your leisure and check things out.
There are some interactive exhibits for kids.
Plus there is a cool place upstairs where kids can put on costumes and get in to a few cars and pretend.
Now Lauren is taking a turn driving.  The chest next to the car has the dress up clothes.
Here you can see more in the kids area for smaller kids.
It was the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future so they had a replica tribute car on exhibit.
There is also an area with buses and other vehicles.  Here are the kids getting on one of the buses that would have gone cross country.
Here is the bus that was used in the movie Forrest Gump.
This is Betty White's personal car.
A cool Coke delivery truck.
A very cool setup they had with a full diner.
In this area there was also a full train model setup.
Evan loves model trains so he loved this.
 Here are some Vespas and other bikes.
There is so much cool stuff to see.
If you are in the area I highly suggest visiting.
