The museum has a large number of Frankins from 1903 to 1932. I would say at least 30 Franklins are available for viewing.
At least one or two staff members are on the floor to answer all questions. All are very knowledgeable aboutbeach auto. If they are not sure of any answer, they will ask another member for information.
I found the staff very accommodating. I arrived about 3:00. When I realized I would have time to photograph and view only so many autos, they told me my ticket would be good the next day. It was. They also hepled me to locate a motel for the night.
Lighting is not the best. My first two days, I only hasd a 35MM point and shoot zoom camera. Many photos were on the dark side. WheOn my third visit , I used a 35 MM SLR with a light meter. Photos much better. Digital photography should be no problem.
When I first visited, July 2007, I was greeted by a 1957 Chevrolet, 1931 Cadillac Convertible Coupe and 1926 Ford Model T Roadster in the lobby. A gift shop is in the lobby. Museum's phone # is 607-344-2886.
The 50s are the last decade to view. Nearby there appears to be a future addition in progress.
A visit to absorb, view, read, and enjoy will taskebat least three hours. Longer if photographing . Modt vehicles have a stand with information.
The museum is easyn to locate.if heading essdt on Rexford Street, cross the railroad tracks, the museum will be on the right. A small parking lot is in front, with a largerr lot across Rexford.
A visitor will be amazed with the history, number of autos and the amount of information available.A visit is highly recommended.
