  • Terrific place to visit. Surprisingly large collection as the building doesn't seem that large. My favorites was the 1929 Peerless 6-61 Roadster.

  • We took our three nephews (ages 6, 8, 11) here on a rainy day while visiting family in the Rockland area. We all had a great time! There is a lot to see and do here. The museum is well maintained.....  more

  • The car and planes here are very well maintained with good information on most of the pieces they have there. I believe in the summer they fly some of the planes which is pretty neat. If you're in the area I'd take a couple hours to visit it. On the smaller side but it's hard to find places with cars and planes from the earlier 1900s. I loved how they had some rare cars. Incredibly clean!
  • The collection was exquisite and really well presented; and, the staff was courteous and professional. Furthermore, the gift store had a wonderful selection for all ages and interests. Well done!!
