Being an automotive buff, I had to visit. Very informative about the history of the tow/recovery industry and the equipment. Loved seeing how the vehicles have evolved. Each vehicle had a poster with the description, age, etc. Neat place! Staff was great too!
This is a very interesting museum. Old tow trucks and towing equipment and a good description of towing history. It's close enough to downtown to make it an easy visit.
If you love old trucks, this is a place you will want to visit. Several old rare tow trucks are on display as well as related towing equipment. This building also houses the International Tower Hall of Fame and the Wall of the Fallen, a monument to honor those who have died while keeping our roadways clear.
