What a wonderful collection of antique cars! A real trip through history with the automobiles. Found several makers we'd never heard of. Well worth the time to visit! The staff is very friendly and happy to share information about their cars.

This place was not somewhere you'd just pass, but I'm so glad we found it. There were a large number of cars, well organized, well displayed, in pristine condition. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. If you're in the area I would definitely make time to stop here.

It may be off the beaten path, but even if you're not a vehicle enthusiast the Northeast Classic Car Museum is worth a visit. A really friendly staff and a reasonable admission cost. It's not just cars. There are airplane engines, motorcycles (trikes), electric vehicles, minibikes, trucks, and I'm sure things I've forgotten. In addition, there's a gift shop, docents... More

Immaculately restored cars, elegantly displayed with mannequins in period clothes. Very well maintained facility with other items and displays including motorcycles and some jet engines. Nice gift shop, too! Friendly staff of volunteers. Highly recommend this place for a visit if you are anywhere near Central New York. Some VERY rare cars as well.

The museum is a phenomenal place to visit time and time again. Young and old alike will be amazed at the sheer number of vintage cars, motorcycles, WWI and WWII engines restored to the "days of yesteryear". The exhibits are well done, and a fact sheet contains bits and pieces of the car's history and/or restoration process. To be fair,... More

This was my second visit to the museum; the first was about seven years ago. I went out of my way to visit a second time. All the big names are represented, such as Duesenberg, Cord, Auburn, etc. Take time to read the placards in front of each car for the historical items they include, such as the hoof-and-mouth disease...

During the week it was quiet. My grandson, who is definitely interested in cars now, loved it. He took loads of pictures and marveled at how shiney all the cars were. Amazingly, he noticed a lot of design innovations too.

How did a little town in the middle of nowhere get a museum like this?! Definitely worth a drive. Classic cars are well represented, especially the Franklin brand (several years on display). Also several muscle cars, presented as manufactured. Small collection of motorcycles on loan. Some car brands I'd never seen or heard of before. Also a small room with... More

I wasn't expecting such a well done museum. The cars are wonderfully original. The staff is friendly and will readily answer your questions. They have arranged the cars so you can walk around from the start and see them all. We loved the Staley collection. The Franklins were cars you never see much. I especially enjoyed the muscle cars and... More

This is an outstanding collection of older classic cars that are well maintained and in top notch condition. The core of the collection is from George Staley who fancied old cars and the proper restoration of old cars for many years. The gems of the collection are about thirty cars that are from all vintages of the H.H. Franklin Motor... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us! Glad you mentioned the airplane engines, they are impressive. The motorcycles in the Muscle Car, Motorcycles & Memories exhibit are on display until April 2016. It is part of the museum that we change out every May. Come back and see us again! More
