Our Mission:

The Mission of the Champlain Valley Transportion Museum is to Preserve, Interpret,Exhibit, and Educate regarding transportation history and artifacts in the Champlain Valley.

The Champlain Valley Transportation Museum, CVTM, was founded in 2000 by a group of Plattsburgh area car and history enthusiasts. Originally designed to be a car museum, featuring the Lozier Automobile Company's history, CVTM has grown to cover all forms of transportation in the area. CVTM explores and interprets the rich history of transportation in the Champlain Valley. From the earliest native American handmade canoes through the manufacturing of modern rail cars, Plattsburgh and the Champlain Valley have seen every major form of transportation. Whether it is the history of barges and steam ferries on Lake Champlain, the D & H rail lines, or military transportation, CVTM will examine and celebrate all things that transport.
