The Museum of Yesterday is a tribute to the greatness of American Industrialism and lifestyle. Throughout the 20th Century, America led the world in research, technology, and in creating a lifestyle that made us the greatest nation on Earth. The development of that great civilization can be traced and documented through the efforts of one private collector who has spent more than a half-century accumulating remnants of those great technological advances and historical documents that were part of this great era in history.

The Museum Of Yesterday is a virtual, soon to be brick-and-mortar, museum housing the massive private collection. Through this site, the collection's founder has made this material available to our visitors, whether it be for research purposes, or merely to take a walk down "memory lane" to a time when we were all proud of our great nation, our political leaders, and the wondrous accomplishments of our people.

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.
