The Northeast Classic Car Museum is a non-profit educational facility in Norwich, New York that collects and exhibits notable vehicles throughout the history of the United States. The museum opened on Memorial Day, 1997.
The museum was founded to encourage tourism in Chenango County, New York. The majority of the museum's collection is from the private collection of George Staley of Lincklaen, New York, who retired from the United States Air Force. The most notable cars that Staley maintained were produced by Franklin, which generated interest from the museum planners. Staley was running out of room for his vehicles when he was approached by the planners.
Over 160 vehicles from 1899 through the early 1970s are on display in five connected buildings. Permanent exhibits feature Franklin automobiles, luxury vehicles, post-war vehicles, and cars made in New York State. Other exhibits are featured on a changing basis.

  • We loved it! Best collection of late 60's, early 70's cars we've seen. All the cars were great and easily visible. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, too. Well worth the drive!

  • One of the best car museums I've every been to. A vast collection of vintage cars. Go in the winter because some collectors store drive-able cars there in the off season.

  • Incredible experience that exceeded expectations. Very reasonably priced and we spent a few hours there but could have spent more but I had young kids in tow who didn’t want to read each plaque. Impeccable layout, gorgeous exhibits and also loved the accompanying dresses on display throughout. The motorcycles and plane engines were nice bonuses. Stu was a fantastic tour guide.
  • We had a great experience visiting this museum. The cars were incredible and the staff was very helpful and friendly. You would definitely need 2-3 hours to see everything. I highly recommend It!
