Outstanding Museumto visit!

If you like to see pristine vintage automobile in one place, this is the place to go. Admission is modest. Please allow plenty of time to savor the many, many exhibits.

This was a wonderful day spent looking at some classic cars and learning a lot about the past. It is even more of an experience with automobile enthusists.

Thanks for the nice review. We think it's great for a rainy day, too - as well as a snowy day, a sunny day, a windy day, just about any day! Our buildings are all connected, so you never have to go out in the weather. Hope to see you again soon! More

I'vs seen a few ads on TV for this place and have been wanting to visit so this past weekend my wife and I drove up from Owego. I could tell she wasn't real excited about going but went along anyway. It was fairly easy to find and there was plenty of parking. At first glance I didn't think it... More

I found this place on the internet while searching for something fun to do as a Christmas gift for my husband who is a car nut! Me, not so much, but I was totally blown away by this place. These old cars, preserved like they are, are absolutely beautiful. We were all (four of us) just amazed. As others have... More

Thanks for making the trip down from Canada, and thanks for the enthusiastic endorsement! It is indeed a lot of walking, but we do have motorized carts and a wheelchair for those with limited mobility or stamina. These are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. We hope to see you again sometime! More

Took a day trip here! When you first pull up the museum looks super small, but once you go inside it blows up! It is room after room of cars! I am not a huge car person, but still enjoyed myself! There were staff walking around ready to fill you in on all the cars in that particular room and... More

not a car enthusiast, however didn't mind going to make my husband happy. we both really liked it. ten dollar admission (we had two dollar off coupon, also), but extremely worth the price. very relaxed-you walk around at your own pace and stay as long as you want. wish i could have ridden in every car. too cool to pass...

We wish we could let folks ride in the cars, but our primary duty is to protect and preserve, so we have to settle for letting people enjoy the beauty of them. So happy you enjoyed your visit - hope to see you again soon! More

Hidden in the small city of Norwich, twisty and winding roads away from both I-90 and/or I-88, is a wonderful museum of classic automobiles many representing unique marques. We spent a terrific 3 hours at this low-key museum and found great information on each car displayed as well as a fascinating variety of vehicles. You might think that you have... More

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
