  • A wide ranging museum with something for everyone. Glen Curtiss was possessed a drive for speed and this is reflected in the variety of fast vehicles of all types here. There are many other things from firearms to typewriters. Allow 2 to 3 hours for your visit. More if you are compelled to read every placard.
  • Wonderful day trip. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but this museum is wonderful. Follow the story of Curtiss from bicycle rider, manufacturer to motorcycles, engines and eventual pioneer aviator and aircraft. Various full scale planes from the dawn of aviation to now. Engines, boats, classic autos and the P40 restoration project in the back. Great history, collection and staff,especially if you are mechanical in nature or interested in flight.
