Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles, Pennsylvania

#148 of 208 in Museums in Pennsylvania
The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles houses dozens of automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles that were manufactured right here in Pennsylvania while the industry was still in its infancy. Prior to that time, the region produced multitudes of horse-drawn vehicles, of which many examples can be found at the Museum.

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles was established in 1965 by Paul and Erminie Hafer. Paul Hafer had a 57-year career of designing and building truck bodies at the Boyertown Auto Body Works, which was co-founded by his father B. Frank Hafer. He served for 21 years as Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles. Erminie Hafer’s book, A Century of Vehicle Craftsmanship, is a thorough history on the transportation industry in Southeastern Pennsylvania and is for sale in the Museum gift shop.

    I had a Surprise Birthday Party for my husband today at the BMHV and it was a huge success! The staff there is "the best"! No complaints whatsoever! Great time! Thank you to all the staff who helped and prepped for my party. You certainly made a stressful experience much easier! Special shout out to Darlene. She is a special person. Thank you so much for everything! Sharon, thank you as well for your help today. My appreciation goes beyond description!

    Much larger than we thought with an amazing collection of old vehicles. It's a must see if you're a car buff and still very interesting even if you're not. Highly recommend.

    Traveled from philly to check it out. Small, like a local attraction. But the (older) lady at the register was very sweet to my children. Loved the cars! Wish it was bigger tho.
