The long awaited Museum of Automobile History is now open to the public. Reflecting over two hundred years of the world's love affair with the automobile, the museum is located in the heart of downtown Syracuse, at 321 Clinton Street. It is the largest museum anywhere dedicated to memorabilia and art related to the history of the automobile.

An estimated ten thousand items reflect every aspect of car history from 1770 to the 1990s. It evokes the world that the automobile left in its wake, in extensive displays of advertising, posters, toys, models, design drawings, fine art, folk art, and more.

The Museum of Automobile History will be open every Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is closed on Monday, Tuesday, and major holidays.

Keep in mind that there are no actual cars at The Museum of Automobile History. While other fine collections display cars, this museum presents the entire world around the car: its humor, its tragedies, its greatest successes, and its obscure failures. If it has anything to do with the automobile, you'll find it at The Museum of Automobile History.
