About  »  Group Tours

Whether you are visiting to view our collection of 22 historic aircrafts, vintage motorcycles and antique motorcycle collection, antique automobile collection, or to learn more about the local history of Hammondsport, the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum has something to appeal to a broad range of age levels and interests.

Guided tours are temporarily unavailable. Groups larger than 10 will be asked to stagger their entry into the museum and walk through our exhibits in smaller groups. Please see below to learn more about self-guided tours, and continue to check our website and social media pages for updates related to guided tours. Thank you for your understanding.


Guided tours may be scheduled during regular museum hours and last approximately 45 minutes. Tours focus on early aviation, local history, and the creative genius of Glenn H. Curtiss.

Self-Guided Tours
Groups who would like to lead their own tours through the museum space must schedule a self-guided tour with the Education Department by phone or email. This allows us to prepare for the group and to assure access to all Museum exhibition spaces, including the Restoration Shop. Please make reservations for self-guided visits at least two weeks in advance.

Car/Motorcycle Clubs
The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum welcomes all car and motorcycle clubs to the museum. Car and motorcycle clubs can book either a guided or self-guided tour. Please reserve your visit at two weeks in advance of your visit to allow the museum to prepare for your group.
