I'm not sure about "average," per se, but here are a couple scenarios to consider: * I would say 30 minutes would be the minimum for breezing in, checking out the trucks, reading a couple descriptive plaques, strolling through the HOF corridor, and breezing out. * I was there for over an hour, which gave me the time to read more info, scrutinize the old towing contraptions, take lots of photos and watch a video. Also, spent time conversing with the guy in the museum shop. He was very interesting, plus I bought a couple of t-shirts.

There are trucks from very early (1800's) through the present. Not sure of the number. If you're like me it would take 1 to 11/2 hours to walk through and look. If you are an antique auto buff or a tow and recovery fan you could take all afternoon. Not sure of the exact amount of vehicles but even I found it very interesting the techniques they had to use and the resourceful tools they came with during the early days of vehicles. We were a group of 8 adults ranging from 45-80 in age, both men and women. We all found it interesting and well worth the admission (AAA members get a discount).
Q:

A:
weekend starting Sept 8th
Q:
What is the cost of admission for seniors?
A:
$6 each
