  • Love the history here. There are many trucks and stories on the history of towing all through. It's great for children also!
  • Pretty cool museum. The classic towing equipment is fun to look at, and worth a trip to visit. They have about 20 different vehicles on display, and while it doesn't sound like much, you can easily spend an hour walking through. I will definitely be going again.
  • Small but wonderful. Nice tow trucks and good documentation about history.
  • Awesome place to have your special event. It will seat up to 250 people.
  • Neat museum with a rather specific target audience.
