A surprising collection of all types and sizes of vehicles including horse drawn wagons, pre motorized vehicles, die cast models that would make any collector drool with envy, and some wonderfully preserved vehicles. Also G gauge model trains, a rare Russian child's pedal car, and rare movie footage of traffic in San Francisco before the great earthquake. We only had... More

My girlfriend and I stopped by this lovely museum on a Friday morning in November. It was their off season, and we were the only ones there at the time, but Dick, our personal tour guide, took us around the whole museum showing us all the cars and such just like he would with a large group. We were so... More

My wife and I are from Plattsburgh area and this was our first visit to the museum. In addition to over fifty historic vehicles, there are antique/vintage bicycles, a locomotive used in the mines at Mineville, a collection of miniature cars, a Lozier pleasure boat and even a trolley car diner. The Museum features two Lozier cars from the early... More

I went to the museum today and it was closed for the season. A person in a nearby office explained that heating the facility is cost prohibitive. It will open in May. Just about the time I will be in north country again. I will have something to look forward too.

On the old US Air Force base in Plattsburgh who would have thought this gem existed? If wasn't for a rainy morning we would never have discovered this place. Richard our personal tour guide showed us around and took two very very informative hours explained about the exhibits, even showing the developments planned for children. They will especially like the... More

Some beautiful cars and SOOO MUCH history to learn! Guides are as well versed in car history as the local history and its significance overall! Very impressed for a small museum in a small town!

We visited the museum and really enjoyed how knowledgeable the tour guide was. I think that this place is a must see if you are in the area. Will definitely recommend it to my friends and family to see. The fee was very reasonable also.
