Drive-In-Movies and first dates as well as proms and pep rallies were represented here in the most amazing cars. I took photos of many of my favorites and also some of the cars and trucks before my teen years. So many memories came rushing back as my husband and I strolled the isles and explored the automobiles of days gone... More

You may have lost your heart, but it sounds as if you found some memories. So glad you enjoyed your visit, both to us, and to the Madison-Bouckville Antique Show. I do want to mention that although we can cater food for groups booked in advance, we don't have a restaurant on-site. We do have many terrific restaurants in Norwich... More

Four of us recently visited this museum. Terrific place to spend some time. A large collection of Franklin cars, claimed to be the largest single display of this brand plus many others. The Franklins are all from George Staley's estate. The cars are absolutely top quality. Quite knowledgeable staff in the display area also. A very scenic drive to get... More

Took a day trip while visiting Cooperstown and was amazed at the quality, number of cars and the hospitality of the folks at the museum. About an hour from Cooperstown over some very scenic roads and well worth the visit. Duane met us at the door and provided an outstanding history of the cars and the automobile history in the...

This museum is really worth going out of your way for. So many cars displayed really well in a huge building(s). The attention to detail on the cars is incredible and the paintwork stunning. A great variety of cars, especially really old ones. As a woman I also really enjoyed the collection of antique clothing, especially the easy it was... More

Stopped by on the way home from Binghamton not knowing what to expect. I'm a gearhead and have seen everything from Hershey to Harrah's. I was greatly impressed with the quality of significant vehicles on display; things you won't see anywhere else. Of particular interest in George Staley's collection of Franklins, a major manufacturer in the early 20th century. Other... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this Museum which has an amazing selection of cars and lots of history. My husband appreciated the guided tour given by one of the volunteers. This is car photographers paradise and I enjoyed snapping away at not only the cars, but the beautifully dressed 'dummies' wearing 1940's and 50's clothing. On Tuesday's in March... More

If there is a better museum of classic cars in America, I would like to know where. The number of cars and variety is stunning. From a 1931 Cadillac convertible, a classic electric car, a front wheel drive Cord, tucks and numerous others in immaculate condition is just incredible. Every car has a placard detailing information on that vehicle that... More
