THE STORY OF
THE MUSEUM OF YESTERDAY

The Museum Of Yesterday is a TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN TECHNOLOGICAL INGENUITY that made our country great.

While displayed here in virtual form, The Museum Of Yesterday is an actual, privately owned collection of several thousand items from America's 19th and 20th Century technological revolutions. Everything depicted on this site is actual physical artifacts held in the museum's collection that includes communications equipment, railroad artifacts, medical and scientific equipment, historic toys, and a library containing thousands of volumes and documents from America's past. The owner of the collection has placed the material on-line as an aid to students of history and technology, and to survey interest in the material. The actual collection is not currently open to the public, but plans are in the works to make it publicly available to on-site visitors.


OUR MISSION
The Museum Of Yesterday exists to preserve the contributions made by American scientists, inventors, industry and historical figures. With the presence of today's progressive leaning government and education interests, much of the true history of the United States is being erased and rewritten. America was once the greatest and most prosperous nation in the world. This came about, to a great extent, because of the men and women who built this country, from its founding through the 1950's technical and manufacturing boom. We strive to preserve examples of American manufacturing and industrial ingenuity, including science, rail transportation, radio, household conveniences, and entertainment.
