Glenn H. Curtiss Museum Reviews
This was a very interesting and informative museum. I didn't know anything about Glenn Curtiss before. more »
Do see this museum if you are in the area ! It's lovely and the staff is so friendly. A real gem with lots for all do see and do, even a play area for kids. Second visit for us and we'd love to see it... more »
Excellent historical experience! If you are interested in the history of the area this museum is perfect for you. Glenn Curtiss was a really fascinating individual. Apart from that, the museum is great for those interested in aviation or motorcycles and even mechanics as they have many old plane engines spread out against the back wall. Another extremely cool part of the museum is the restoration shop which is where they are currently working on the P-40 that was recovered from a swamp in Florida. The guys running it were very open to questions and they are happy to converse with people who are interested. I also hear that they are looking for volunteers wherever they can get them because currently there are only a few older gentlemen working on the planes so if you are looking for a unique volunteering opportunity, the museum would also be great for that. Overall, this museum is a great piece of history for our area and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Have been going here for years. Great displays and very knowledgeable staff. Great kids section too.
