    My wedding was amazing!

    It was beyond my expectations. It was so beautiful. It made our day so incredible. And the staff was so helpful and accommodating. I had my dogs in the wedding and at the reception and the accommodations they had for my dogs were beyond my expectations as well. We were even able to rent out the storage garage for pictures with other cars! I can’t recommend this place enough!

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. Sincerely, Adam, Headliner DJ and Marketing for Klock Entertainment
