International Towing Museum
Come walk among early towing and recovery history in the International Towing & Recovery Hall Of Fame and Museum. Enjoy restored antique wreckers and equipment, industry related displays of collectible toys, tools, unique equipment, and pictorial histories of manufacturers who pioneered a worldwide industry.
Chattanooga, Tennessee was chosen as the museum’s home because the industry’s first wrecker was fabricated approximately three and a half miles away from the museum at the Ernest Holmes Company.
Automotive and history buffs alike will enjoy a tour of the nostalgic museum, located in at the foot of historic Lookout Mountain. The ever-changing collection of tow trucks dates from the earliest days of the automobile.
The museum has a variety of antique toys and memorabilia to entertain all members of your family. Be sure and check out Tater Tot, a scaled down, hands-on tow truck, the latest addition to the museum’s collection.
The International Towing and Recovery Museum was dedicated in the fall of 1995 and has been growing ever since. The museum is located at 3315 Broad St.. Winter hours are: Mon – Sat 10am – 4:30pm, Sun 11am- 5pm. For additional info call 423-267-3132.
