  • Unexpectedly interesting museum for someone who has no prior knowledge or particular interest in towing. I left with a greater respect for the industry and I learned a lot of interesting facts about the towing. Overall it is definitely worth a visit if you’re driving by.
  • My wife and I were visiting from out of town when she suggested that we visit this museum. At first I was a bit sceptical but I must say it was very nice! There are quite a few older historical trucks on site in very good repair that are truly beautiful if you appreciate 20th century design. The short film at the beginning was informative but didn't overstay its welcome. I didn't expect to loose a very enjoyable hour taking in towing and recovery memorabilia but I would absolutely recommend it.
