  • I never heard of Glenn Curtiss before. What a great story. Be sure to watch the documentary in their theater.

  • I visited the Curtiss museum when visiting the Finger lakes. I love to look at old planes and the museum did not disappoint. A lot of them were reproductions or replicas which is understandable...

  • I love history and this museum is a fantastic story of early bikes, motorcycles and airplanes, built by Glenn Curtiss. The display of bikes is amazing and many have been restored. The motorcycles were equally amazing and the story of Glenn Curtiss and racing bikes is awesome. He also built some great motorcycles. Most people will know him as part of the Curtiss-Wright airplane manufacturing. The planes on display are early types as well as a P40 Mustang made famous during WW2. If you are in the Finger Lakes, take the time to come and visit this place.
  • We chose to visit this museum out of all others in the area and it was well worth it. There is a lot to see and learn about Glenn H. Curtiss who in one display's posted quote is described as a "self taught mechanical genius." An aviation pioneer, his planes are all here along with their engines from leisure to war time. His motorcycles, bikes, boats, some personal belongings and a classic car collection make this a fascinating exhibit for anyone who loves all things powered by motors.
