The Saratoga Automobile Museum is located in the 2,379-acre Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, New York. Housed in a former water bottling plant built in 1935, the museum is chartered by the Board of Regents of the State of New York Department of Education as a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit institution and focuses on the impact of the automobile in the past, present and future in New York and the wider world. The Museum is also a member of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM).

After a full renovation, the Saratoga Automobile Museum was chartered in 1999 and officially opened to the public in June 2002. It can display approximately thirty vehicles between three galleries on two floors. The ground floor displays rotating featured exhibits between two galleries. Gallery A is an expansive space featuring 30+ foot ceilings, original tile walls and flooring, and the focal point of the gallery, 3 floor-to-ceiling palladian windows and observation walkway. This gallery is often used for public and private events and weddings. Also on the first floor is a small theater room and an art gallery showcasing local and international artists and photographers. The second floor houses the two permanent exhibits overlooking the first floor, Racing in New York and East of Detroit, plus the New York State Stock Car Association Hall of Fame.

  • Not a huge museum, but nicely done and if you are a car enthusiast, worth the visit. The museum is in an old bottling plant and the exhibition it on the main floor changes quite often. Some summer...

  • Two floors of cars ! The upper floor is their permanent exhibit and the lower floor is where they change out the cars. We went for the 80’s and 90’s display. It was amazing. Worth the trip and done...

  • I always love visiting the museum, but this occasion was extra special because our friend visiting from out of state really loves Porsche, and there were many beauties on display! We wandered through and admired them and eventually made our way upstairs to the permanent collection. It was a lovely experience, as always, and really great way to spend an afternoon.
  • AWESOME!!! This was a beautifully clean, informative and fun little museum. Very interesting even for non-car enthusiasts! The building was in amazing condition and had so many little details that made the experience so cool. Cannot believe how clean it was. Very nice staff. Wish there was more in the gift shop to buy, didn't see anything that caught my eye! The 80's theme cars displayed this season were paired with 80's music thought-out the floor! 100% worth a stop!
