About us

The Northeast Classic Car Museum is a not-for-profit educational facility in Norwich, New York 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 Museum opened on Memorial Day weekend 1997, and over 200 vehicles from 1899 through the early 1980s are on display in five connected buildings.

Permanent exhibits feature pre-war and post-war vehicles, the world’s largest collection of Franklins, and cars made in New York State. We also feature period correct clothing among the vehicles, a collection of WWI & WWII airplane engines and a tribute to Bennett Ireland.
