All ages are welcome!

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is housed in the former home of the Boyertown Auto Body Works which had continuous operations on this site from 1872-1990. Guided tours begin in the Museum lobby where you’ll see the featured exhibit. As you make your way through the Museum’s main gallery, you will still see remnants of the old factory and even trucks that were originally built in this very building! Along with the various PA-built vehicles and carriages, the Museum also features the famous 1938 ‘Fegely’s’ Diner, a 1921 Sunoco gas station, and a 1920s tourist cabin!

Make your way to the second floor to see the original 1872 Jeremiah Sweinhart Carriage Factory where vehicle building began in Boyertown. The Museum proudly presents a dynamic exhibit of the reconstructed blacksmith forge and early, belt-driven machine shop, along with a display of buggies and wagons built right here in the Carriage Works. Follow along the covered walkway to enter our NEW Carriage Barn which houses carriages, wagons, sleds, and sleighs.

For special pricing or to schedule a tour, please call Felicia Schrader at 610-367-2090 or email felicia@boyertownmusuem.org.

Collection

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles preserves and educates about our local road transportation history. Almost all of the vehicles, from cars and trucks to wagons and carriages, were built in Pennsylvania. We also count automotive literature and memorabilia amongst our collection.

Volunteer

Volunteers make the wheels turn at the Boyertown Museum, and we are always looking for more members for the team. Whatever your interests and strengths, we will work with you to find the perfect project for you.
