Not just for those interested in planes. There is loads to see and they have great rotating exhibits throughout the year. If you have out of town guests, a great place to take them.

Wow, an incredible amount of transportation history in one low-key place. It would take several days to digest it all but we got a good show in ~2 hours.

This museum can be seen in our 2-3 hours. Lokk for special exhibits. Glenn Curtis was a genius who started tinkering with motor cycles and went on to develop his line of air craft. Some of his planes were widely used in World War Two.

Make sure you set aside time to visit the Glenn H. Curtis Museum if you are anywhere near the Finger Lakes. Curtis was a exceptional inventor and technology leader. His accomplishments spanned designing and manufacturing aircraft, engines of various types, motorcycles, boats, and more.

Curtis aircraft and engines helped the Allies win WW II. Find out how he did this and more by visiting the displays at the museum.
