Kingsland, GA Welcomes the Mobile Museum

December 10, 2014

On Sunday, the Mobile Museum team hit Kingsland, Georgia where they heard an outpouring of great stories from visitors at the stop. 

A family drove from Atlanta to see the Mobile Museum with their son. They wanted to surprise him with something fun since he had been sick for a couple weeks and he loves toy trucks. The parents bought the boy a 2014 holiday truck and he later told them he wants “to become a collector!”

A grandfather came to the museum with his grandson. He surprised the boy with a Collector’s Edition truck wrapped up as a birthday present!

A woman came to the museum after filling up her tank at the gas station. She remembered her father being a collector and thought the museum was so cool that she went back home and brought her neighbor’s kids to see the collection.

She hides mini trucks all over the house at Christmas time like its Easter and makes all of the kids go find them after dinner.”

A young man visited the museum, whose grandfather worked for Hess for 20 years. “If it weren’t for him introducing me to the trucks when I was a kid, I would have never known about you all coming to town. He is currently in a wheelchair and I’m going to go get him and bring him back now that I know you have a ramp that can accommodate us!”

The Mobile Museum is currently en route to Florida and will be at the Hess Express station in Tampa today from 11:00 a.m. to 7 p.m.!
