Crane’s Museum

See Photo Location

In 2004, Crane’s Museum and Shoppes opened with retail shops and a restaurant in the front half and a 4000-square-foot museum comprised of the Crane Family collections from the early 1900s in the back section.

The family arranged and displayed a wide variety of items one could find in the Williamsburg area at the turn of the century. The museum features a school room, barber shop, old store, gas station with cars, a “home” in the center, a doll room, flint lock gun room, Native American arrowhead collection and a toy room. All of the items came from more than four generations of collections and auction finds.

Come see all we have to offer in the museum and enjoy a filling breakfast, homemade burger or hand-dipped ice cream in Marlene’s Restaurant in the front. We love large groups, with seating in the museum for up to 55 and a parlor room for meetings for groups up to 25.
