I was completely impressed with this place and I'm not much of a car person.. It was well worth the drive and the money. Highly recommend.

We have been to many car museums here and abroad as well as many "classic car shows". We also were former owners of an antique Ford (1914 open touring) and know a bit about the culture. To say that we were "knocked for a loop" by this astounding collection would be an understatement. It was absolutely "mind-boggling". The Franklin collection... More

Wow! Thanks for the terrific praise! We're so glad you made the trip to see us (and our cars, of course). We will be sure to pass your kind words on to Ed - he is just one of the many volunteers who keep the Museum running and who make the experience so special. Hope to see you again sometime! More

Visited this museum in early august with my son, Brother-in-law (Who has a private collection of Classics in Sri Lanka) & Nephew. Never imagined that this place would have such a large collection of all American classics. The display of cars either as is or restored to pristine condition. It was difficult to believe that all cars looked as if... More

If you are a car enthusiast- or just nostalgic-make this a to do. My son and I visited the corvette museum years ago and were very disappointed at its loss.

There are still many who remember the Corvette Museum in the nearby Cooperstown area fondly, even though we lost that gem about 20 years ago. :( Glad we could become part of a new tradition for you and your son. Thanks for the nice review! More

We found this museum to not only display a tremendous number of beautiful cars but also tell the history of automobile manufacturing in New York State. The layout is immaculate, with the floors so clean you could eat on them (just kidding). Norwich is worth a stop to experience this museum.

I have been through quite a number of classic car museums up and down the east coast, but nothing even comes close to the immense number, and beautifully restored cars in this museum. The cars range from one of a kind hand built that you will see nowhere else through the classic luxury days of the movie stars to the... More

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
