Autobots and Decepticons Transform America On Wheels Museum

Looking for a car-related activity the whole family can enjoy? Read on. Cars from the blockbuster movie franchise, Transformers, are coming to Allentown, Pennsylvania next month and we got the detail.

Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Megatron and Sonic—the megastars of the billion-dollar blockbuster franchise, Transformers, will be on exhibit at the America On Wheels Museum from September 9th until the end of 2017 (December 31st ).

The exhibit titled, “The Cars from TRANSFORMERS,” is the largest Transformers movie car exhibit to date and will include the following cars from the cast:

 

  • Bumblebee (2014 Chevrolet Camaro Concept) from Transformers: Age of Extinction

 

  • Sideswipe (50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept) from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

 

  • Rollbar (2013 Sonic RS Rally) from Transformers: Age of Extinction

 

  • Megatron (Mack Truck) from Transformers: Dark of the Moon

 

The family-friendly exhibit was curated by Ed Welburn, an America On Wheels board member and retired General Motors (GM) vice president of Global Design. Bumblebee, Swideswipe and Rollbar were designed under Welburn’s leadership at GM.

“The vehicles in Transformers often give viewers a glimpse into the future of automotive design through concept vehicles,” says Welburn. “With the release of Transformers: The Dark Knight this past summer, the exhibit is a great opportunity for fans to revisit some of the most iconic vehicles from the franchise.”

Museum visitors will get an up-close look at the vehicles and learn about the development processes of each model. Photo opportunities will be available on several select days throughout the exhibit’s run.

“The museum is excited to host automotive and film enthusiasts from across generations to celebrate the iconic, pop-culture vehicles of Transformers,” says Linda Merkel, Director, America On Wheels Museum. “This collection further diversifies the museum’s vehicle collection, which spans six generations and includes more than 50 vehicles and numerous historical artifacts.”

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5 pm and Noon to 5pm on Sunday. Ticket sales end at 4 pm.
