The Museum commemorates and preserves the heritage of Stanley family genius. Visitors to the Stanley Museum are greeted and directed first to the car room exhibiting the steam cars, and a 20 hp Stanley engine, boiler and burner exhibit that demonstrates the power plant of the Stanley steam car. There is also a chain-driven Mason Regulator engine on exhibit, an engine used in the first Stanley cars and the original Whitney steam engine that started it all in the 1890s. Photographs telling the Stanley steam car story are arranged with information panels in chronological order, beginning with a photo of the Stanley twins, seated in the first Stanley Steamer in 1897.
