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

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.

Nice place to see old vehicles and the museum of model cars and trucks on display. Very interesting to see transportation from those years.
