The Mobile Museum Hits Florida for Its Final Tour Week

December 12, 2014

The Mobile Museum team has finally made it to Florida where it will complete its seven-week tour on December 16th. Yesterday, tour managers Mark and Jaime arrived in Tampa to a fun crowd of Hess Toy Truck collectors and enthusiasts of all ages.

One couple drove three hours to see the museum. The wife’s grandfather collected for her when she was growing up and she inherited the collection when he passed.

An emotional visitor cried when he won a 2014 holiday truck. He was so excited and overjoyed that he would be able to give the truck to his newborn son.

A young boy came to the museum and actually offered Mark and Jaime a tour of the collection, where he shared his tales of the years he received each truck since he was born.
