The Antique Auto Museum in Hershey is reopening to the public Saturday, June 27. The museum was closed and gave visitors a chance to “keep up to speed” with the Museum through Virtual Visits series, online Museum Bookshelf, and digital “Collection Chronicles” series.
To show appreciation to members, donors, contributors, volunteers, and the community, the AACA is presenting an interim exhibit featuring unique and notable vehicles from the Museum collection. Among the highlights are “Big Bad Orange” AMX, “Helen”,a 1932 Studebaker, Betty White’s “Parakeet,” and the 1968 Chrysler Imperial featured in “ride” with Museum Curator Stan Sipko.
