2022 Season Opening Day Recap
Over the winter the entire staff at DWTT stayed busy with museum and display enhancements as well as all new exhibits and of course “new” motorcycles and machines. All with the idea of enhancing the overall visitor experience.
The plane has always been a guest favorite and after filming we placed the plane into an all-new exhibit that displays it in a way that pays honor to its history and purpose.
The Miller Light Plane was built by a young man named Wilson Miller from Onida, NY in the early 1930s. After winning a design contest, Miller took the prize money and built the plane. After struggling to find a pilot he went on to get his pilots license and flew the plane for several years. During the process of building the new exhibit we uncovered documentation that the Harley-Davidson JD engine Miller used to power the plane was ordered and custom-built by the HD Factory for aviation use. This engine design is the only one known to exist.
The museum’s hours for the 2022 Season are Thursday through Monday, 10AM to 5PM, and closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. We hope you’ve already made plans to see us this year and we can’t wait to fire up some amazing pieces of American history at “The Museum That Runs!”
