I went here for a Christmas party. The building was beautiful. It was set up great for a party, but probably would not go there on my own for any other reason. Two floors, with elevator access. Not what I expected. Wont take you very long to go thru.

They also have an East of Detroit exhibit about the history of automobile manufacturing in NY. One of my favorites was the Playboy car, a small auto built by the Playboy Motor... More

Not a thrilling museum. Lots of old stuff in bad shape and a few nice old cars. Probably would not recommend.

I've been here at least twice. The museum is smallish and a hour or two is more than enough to cover everything. They have a permanent collection and also a rotating one, so it's worth going back more than once. They offer a scavenger hunt for kids to hunt down facts and receive a small prize at the end. They... More

We enjoyed visiting this little Museum and seeing the antique cars. Neither my husband or I are particularly car people, but the Museum was accessible and well displayed. The docents were friendly and helpful in giving us background info. I recommend a visit if you are in the area, especially for families and kids!

If you are a car enthusiast, this is a must. Even if you are not, you'll truly enjoy this place. The people who work there go out of their way to answer questions. We really enjoyed ourselves. They change automobiles now and then, so it's worth a second visit!

Restored building and automobile museum. Great time with many interesting car displays. Learned about Sam Posey. More than a race car driver. We didn't catch her name but a very nice lady who was a staffer was patient and answered our questions and provided appreciated background information.

Smallish auto museum featuring the history of car making in New York State. Many companies, Pierce Arrow probably the most famous, all gone. Located in the state park with free parking. Allow maybe an hour, worth a visit

The automobile museum is small, but interesting. The building its housed in used to be a bottling plant for water from the local springs. There are some interactive displays
