  • The Museum was a perfect venue for our party. The guests were amazed by the facility and all of the exhibits. The Director, Ben Johnson was incredible to work with. The collections of cars, boats, motorcycles and airplanes (and a huge quilt exhibit as well) kept all of our guests, aged 8-90, enthralled. Whether for an event, a trip to the Finger Lakes or a trip through the history, the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum should definitely be on your list of places to see.
  • Very nice museum if you're interested in learning how airplanes work, their history, and the different types. Plenty of history on motorcycles as well. I was impressed by how well made the displays were. They also have a room that they were working on restoring a crashed plane. It was neat to be able to walk into the shop get up close with it. There was a very nice part in the center that was made for kids. My kids could spend all day there
  • Super interesting an fun for the whole family. Displays very professional and informative. I learned a lot.
  • Who says the USA has no culture? This will prove otherwise. The history and characters are presented with an obvious eye for detail and attention. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.
  • really great museum. highly recommend to go see it if in the area
