Rochester, Minnesota— The Nuss Collection officially opens its doors to the public on September 25th with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 11:00 a.m. This new Rochester-based museum invites the public into the story of the rise of the trucking industry, celebrating the vintage vehicles that built America and honor the many inspirational individuals who worked to preserve its legacy.
