  • I love history and this museum is a fantastic story of early bikes, motorcycles and airplanes, built by Glenn Curtiss. The display of bikes is amazing and many have been restored. The motorcycles were equally amazing and the story of Glenn Curtiss and racing bikes is awesome. He also built some great motorcycles. Most people will know him as part of the Curtiss-Wright airplane manufacturing. The planes on display are early types as well as a P40 Mustang made famous during WW2. If you are in the Finger Lakes, take the time to come and visit this place.
  • Very interesting place. I enjoyed learning more about Glenn Curtiss and his contributions to motorcycles and flying. Lots of great flying machines, early motorcycles, and other vehicles pioneered by Curtiss, or that he helped influence.
