History is like Frankenstein's monster: all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon to the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum, located on historic Broad Street. Choose between two options:

  • For $10, you get two one-day general-admission tickets for ages 19 and up (a $16 value), as well as a museum travel mug (a $4.25 value; a $20.25 total value).
  • For $3.50, you get a one-day senior or military ticket (a $7 value). Senior tickets apply to individuals 55 and older.

The International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum recounts the history of roadside tow-truck drivers with a variety of exhibits, vehicles, and artifacts. The museum resides three miles from the building site of the industry's first wrecker, and the museum commemorates such vehicular innovation with displays of antique wreckers created in its wake, showcases of old-fashioned equipment, and animatronic depictions of America’s first tow-truck senator. Delight little ones and stir nostalgic waters for reflective grandparents by following the tow truck's evolution through antique toys, memorabilia, and stories of the professionals who risk their lives for fellow motorists daily. Pairs touring the museum take home their own piece of history with an included travel mug emblazoned with the museum's logo, reminding motorists of early trucks powered entirely by hot chocolate.

Tickets are free for children 5 and younger and $4 for children 6–18.
