Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles, Pennsylvania

(4.6/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • Very interesting. Did not realize how much the auto industry had its roots in the Reading Area.
  • Great collection of vintage autos. Family friendly. My kids loved the real scale mock up of the Diner! Great to know about the electric vintage cars/buggy.
  • Great collection of autos and memorabilia. Very informed and friendly staff.
  • This museum is a hidden gem. The history and awesomely cool vintage cars are truly amazing. They even have some vintage motorcyles. A great place to take the family for an outing.
