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.

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

The best things always start somewhere. I arrived with my family to the museum, hoping to give the kids something to do, as there is a lack of entertainment for children in the Plattsburgh area. Upon first glance, it is a sortof run down looking garage, with other buildings surrounding it, forming a sort of campus. On the windows are... More
