Incorporated in 1961, the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum (located within the Finger Lakes of Western New York) is dedicated to bringing before the public the accomplishments of early motorcycle manufacturer and aviation pioneer Glenn Hammond Curtiss. Located on State Route 54 in Hammondsport, NY, the museum houses a priceless collection of historic aircraft, motorcycles, and other artifacts of Curtiss origin. The museum also exhibits items of local (Finger Lake) historical significance including boats, winemaking equipment, firearms, house-wares, tools, toys, and 19th century fire fighting equipment. In addition to seeing the Hammondsport museum displays and exhibits, Hammondsport visitors are welcome to visit the Restoration Shop, talk with volunteer craftsman and watch them as they work on the restoration of historic aircraft.
