Brief DescriptionThe oldest automobile museum in America
DescriptionNearly a century of automotive history is in store for those who come to Huntingdon, Pa. The Swigart Museum is the oldest car museum in America having been established in 1920 by the late W. Emmert Swigart.

About 35 cars are on display. Included among the exhibits are several of the most popular autos at the turn of the century. Although the collection is distinguished in its presentation of the automobile during its formative years, it also features examples of outstanding vehicles from the classic era. Famous marques represented in the collection include: Pierce-Arrow, 2 Tuckers, Herbie, The Love Bug, 1936 Duesenberg Gentleman's Speedster, 1981 DeLorean and many others. Also, a large collection of name badges and license plates. You can see many types of bicycles, toys, lights, dolls and other memorabilia.

The collection features many rare, and in many cases, one-of-a-kind vehicles. Each car has a history that deserves taking time for recounting. Each car is a work of art that bears testimony to a nearly-forgotten era when motor carriages were built by craftsmen.
