My son and I had a wonderful time at the museum. The staff was very courteous and I was able to borrow an electric scooter (I would not have been able to see everything without it). This was well worth the 1.5 hour drive. Please note: There are plenty of bathrooms for us old timers.

The entrance does not look that big but on the inside it is huge. You go from one building to another with out realizing it. I am not a car fan but I found the museum fascinating. There were so many unique cars from all different time periods. I would not have gone there if it were not for a... More

We are from northern VT, and my husband turned 70 the 1st of May. He had wanted to see this museum, and so we took a little "adventure road trip", staying in Oneota. On Sunday morning April 23, 2017, we drove to Norwich...only about 40 minutes away...and ended up spending over 3 hours at this museum. Each era was separate... More

Northeast is within a 3.5 hour drive from NY metro area, and well worth the trip. Incredible collection of autos from brass era through the 60's, with cordial, welcoming staff and great information about the vehicles on display. Also, the world's best collection of Franklin air-cooled vehicles. My significant other, who is distinctly NOT a car person, was impressed by... More

If you love old cars, this is the place to go. Even if you don't "love" them, you will find it very interesting. The people who work there are very knowledgeable and super friendly. The cars, motorcycles, etc are beautiful and displayed very well . We spent a couple of hours there just looking around. Definitely will go back again,... More

What this museum is doing so out of the way is beyond me, but it is treasure trove of automotive beauty.

We stopped here on our journey back to D.C. From Niagra Falls and wouldn't have had it any other way. Wonderful people and great sights of their collections! Worth the drive and time 😊

When we pulled up in front of this museum we thought it was just a gift shop. The building looked small . When we entered the museum we were shocked at how large it was and what a treasure of beautiful old restored cars. This place was immaculate. The cars were a joy to see. Well worth the trip. The...
