About the Museum

The Northeast Classic Car Museum is an educational facility that collects, preserves, interprets and exhibits vehicles related to the evolution of transportation, with particular emphasis on the role of the automobile and its impact on American culture.

The Northeast Classic Car Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, chartered by the New York State Department of Education. The Museum is funded by generous private and corporate donors, fund-raising efforts, and by admissions and gift shop sales. Governed by a 15+ member Board of Trustees, the Museum relies on 5 paid staff members and nearly 100 volunteers for operations.

The Museum opened on Memorial Day weekend 1997 with one building and just over 50 vehicles on display. Currently, over 160 vehicles are on display in 5 connected buildings. Informative videos, period fashions, and more enhance the Museum experience.
