The proactive management of maintaining a healthy work environment is evolving as we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 virus and other health-related topics this season.

Our first priority is the well-being of our Museum staff. Based on guidance from external organizations, such as the CDC, we are temporarily closing the Museum for tours. This is consistent with other Mack facilities where external customers and visitors enter our facilities.

During this closure, the museum staff will focus our efforts on the request queue. We have quite a backlog of information requests in our queue that require attention.

We thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we strive to maintain a healthy workplace, while continuing to support our activities, supporters and friends.

The Mack Museum would like to have a clean scan of the original Mack Bulldog Magazine. Could you be the one to help us preserve Mack history?

We’re still looking for an original copy of the first issue of Bulldog Magazine from 1920 and from customers who were featured in previous versions of Bulldog in celebration of the magazine turning 100 this year!

Help us celebrate this milestone by sharing your Bulldog Magazine stories from throughout the years. Submit your anecdotes and information to [email protected].

100 years ago today, the fighting ended for World War I, “the war to end all wars.” Since then the date has become known as #VeteransDay in the U.S., to honor all the men and women who have served. Mack Trucks is proud to have played its role from WWI to today for American and Allied forces. Today and every day, the Mack Trucks Historical Museum joins in sharing the sentiments of Mack and its employees to salute and thank all veterans for their heroic service.

The Macks are buried at Fairview Cemetery in Allentown. This is the third oldest cemetary in the city and is home to many famous past Lehigh Valley residents. The cemetery is not in great condition. Please check out our event: https://www.facebook.com/events/349086272420915/
Hi everyone - it was so fun for us at WVIA to produce this Short Take documentary on the museum. Thanks to Doug Maney playing expert on-screen host! Here’s a slightly different link for viewing. https://www.facebook.com/WVIATVFM/videos/vb.155393513186/282327529376431/?type=2&theater
Our City’s 1945 Mack Type 45 Pumper. I was told original engine was trash and instructed to perform a resto-mod of sorts. Engine is a modern fuel injected 5.3 with a TH400 automatic transmission. Chassis has been converted to 12 volt neutral ground and all lights, switches, gauges and siren have either been converted or replaced to function on 12 volts. The project took about a year and a half and will be at its first event at the end of the month.
This 1930s Mack Dump Truck, is on location in Albany NY Rural Cemetery, for filming of the movie IRONWEED, with Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep , and Bob Fickies.....1987..
At present i am rebuilding the cab of my Mack NM chassis no NM8D6877 , can you please tell me the thread size of the retaining nut that holds the steering wheel at the top of the column.
