We collect and preserve historically and technically important automobiles, aircraft, bicycles, motorcycles, spacecraft and related accessories and archival materials that illustrate the development of transportation and its connection to the culture and history of Northeast Ohio, the United States and the world.
The Collection showcases antique, vintage, and classic automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, automobile culture and aircraft.
We’re the only place you won’t mind bumper to bumper traffic!
Northeastern Ohio’s contribution to aviation is also showcased in the Crawford Collection. Northeast Ohio has played a vital part in the development of aviation, with one of the largest and busiest airports in the world throughout the 1920s and 1930s, and the legendary National Air Races held for 20 innovative years on the shores of Lake Erie. The Crawford holds a dozen historically significant airplanes that preserve inspiring evidence of mankind's universal dream of flight.
