All-American Girls Professional Baseball League at the Antique Auto Museum

A quick jaunt to Hershey brings you to the Antique Auto Museum. Currently, the AACA hosts a timely exhibited entitled the “All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and their Buses” on the Lower Level. The exhibit shows the real “A League of their Own” made famous by Tom Hanks and Gina Davis in 1992. It includes the same type of bus used in the movie, real player uniforms, memorabilia about individual teams, and posters.


On Saturday, August 29, 2010 from 12:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m., a visit to the exhibit also gives you a chance to visit with Helen Waddell, a former Rockford Peaches baseball player. Ms. Waddell was an All-American basketball player in 1949, and then became an utility infielder/outfielder for the Peaches in 1950. She continued one more season, playing for the Rockford Peaches and Battle Creek in 1951.


The Antique Auto Museum contains eight decades of vehicles, starting from the very first Model T’s to modern vehicles. Not only can you see a wide range of vehicles, the Valentine Diner from Wichita, KS is located on the Lower Level, a fantastic opportunity to see a true 1950s diner, right down to the menu on the counters. As you wander through the museum, you visit decade after decade of shiny cars and trucks, ambulances and fire vehicles. The 1920s area recently received an update to the mural to reflect Hershey in the 1920s, hand painted by Pennsylvania native David Naydock.


The Antique Auto Museum is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Adult admission is $10.00, seniors 61 and over is $9.00 and children 4 to 12 are $7.00, but with a family museum membership ($80.00 a year) admission is free. Remember, the museum membership is tax deductable.
