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