The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum is a transportation museum in Hammondsport, New York with a focus on the early aviator Glenn H. Curtiss. The 60,000 square foot facility has a collection of aircraft, vintage motorcycles, automobiles, and aircraft engines. The museum was founded in the summer of 1962 by Otto Kohl. It was originally located in a former high school. However, in 1992, the museum relocated to a former winery building south of Hammondsport. The museum contains over a dozen aircraft, including AEA June Bug (reproduction), Curtiss Model D (reproduction), Curtiss Model E, "America" flying boat, JN-4D Jenny, Curtiss Model MF "Seagull", Curtiss Oriole, Curtiss Robin, C-46 Commando, three Mercury Aircraft, a 2/3 scale Curtiss P-40 Warhawk reproduction, and Curtiss-Wright Junior. The museum also displays 16 automobiles, the majority of which are on loan. Smaller collections include bicycles, wooden boats, and motorcycles. (Source: Wikipedia)
