Best Wedding Ever!
When my husband and I started looking for venues, we knew we did not want "mainstream". We landed at the AACA museum based on our families' love of cars and the uniqueness of the venue. Andrea was a dream to work with during the planning process. She knows so much about the area and was able to give recommendations about vendors. She had so many ideas on how to make the space ours, but she also listened to our vision and was flexible in making our ideas realities. We live about an hour and fifteen minutes away from the museum and were able to drop items off in advance and pick them up the following week. Andrea and the entire team were also extremely kind and helpful to our guests the night of the wedding. The space turned out beautifully! It did not feel like a museum but still allowed for all the men in our families to wander while the women danced and talked :). Our guests continue to claim it was the best wedding ever, and we have Andrea and the AACA to thank!Sent on 07/18/2019

Marissa was amazing. She did so much and more. I didn't need a wedding planner because she was everything. If I had a question she was right on it. She had things set up before I even knew I needed them! I want to have a wedding again just to work with her. Lol. I highly recommend the AACA Museum! Marissa was like working with the dream team. I know she had a few other people helping her but she was on her game before the wedding, during and even after the wedding. The venue is so fun and special but she made it amazing!Sent on 08/10/2018

As a story teller, I love being in environments where story is so evident. This museum with its picturesque historical displays is perfect for a unique wedding ceremony. The site is good for both table and chair seating as well as theater style seating. And being able to bring your own caterer is a plus.
The Antique Auto Museum at Hershey is a beautiful location. Your guests will have a memorable experience visiting the Museum and then a wonderful reception whether you choose the Rotunda or the downstairs room. The catering staff always provide amazing dinners. As a vendor, I always enjoy working here as they have a very organized and safe way for entertainers to bring our equipment in and out of the building.
I always love working with the Antique Auto Museum at Hershey because of the unique space that they have available to them to create memories and lifelong impressions for any event. This would mean nothing if not for the incredible staff that provides the energy, drive and passion to bring these possibilities to life. The creativity that the Antique Auto Club brings to both private and internal events is something that is sorely needed in the local wedding community, and the staff at AACA is helping to inject a dose of that type of energy with events like their annual wedding show and Auto & Ales events.
