Saratoga Automobile Museum
Welcome to the Saratoga Automobile Museum where we preserve, interpret and exhibit automobiles and automotive artifacts. We celebrate the automobile and educate the general public, students and enthusiasts regarding the role of the automobile in New York State and in the wider world. In addition to technical and design aspects, our educational focus is on the past, present and future social and economic impact of the automobile.

Grade/age level specific field trips have been designed to engage and educate all students. Each program begins with an introduction to our Museum and the history of the automobile in New York State, followed by a guided tour of each exhibit. Programs conclude with a “Traffic Safety” music and craft project (for pre-k and elementary students) and a “New York State Auto Archaeology” scavenger hunt for middle-high school students.
*Each student will receive a gift bag from the museum containing practical, fun and informational materials.
Cost: $5.00 per student (Chaperones are free).
SAM’s Garage is a place where children learn about cars while gearing up for life.
Programs at SAM’s Garage encourage non-traditional, multigenerational learning opportunities for underserved children utilizing historic automobiles. The goal is to help students increase their understanding and proficiency in math, science and history, while helping them to improve their desire to stay in school, develop strong leadership skills and healthy community relationships. Previous projects include the restoration of the iconic Ford Model TT Popcorn Wagon seen at many of the Museum’s summer auto and lawn shows, and a Model A Huckster built from scratch.
The Museum has also served as a host for the Pinewood Derby with local Cub Scouts, provides an education area inside the museum where students can learn about cars and racing and during the Holidays, welcomed Santa Claus to its garage.
The mission of the Saratoga Automobile Museum is to preserve, interpret and exhibit automobiles and automotive artifacts.
