Located on the beautiful museum campus along Lake Champlain, the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum (CVTM) showcases the rich transportation history of the region, featuring Lozier Automobile Company. CVTM was founded in 2000 by a group of car and history enthusiasts from the Plattsburgh area. What began as an automobile museum has grown to cover many more forms of transportation. The foundation of CVTM is the Lozier Motor Company, an automobile manufacturing business during the early 1900s that built some of the most exquisite and expensive vehicles during that time period. CVTM is dedicated to exploring, interpreting, and celebrating the regions rich transportation history.

KIDS' STATION is a division of CVTM and is an interactive and educational museum for children to learn about the history and the future of transportation. Kids Station hosts many events throughout the year, all of which are dedicated to engaging children in a fun and exciting environment for learning. These family events include: Tractor Day, Family Fun Day, the monthly Family Movie Night and, through a continuing partnership with Mountain Lake PBS, early childhood reading hour with themes like Thomas the Train, Curious George, and Bob the Builder.
