Welcome to Crane’s Snowmobile Museum

Crane’s Snowmobile Museum is a place where visitors can see the evolution of riding through the years – from Ski-Doo machines first introduced in the 1960s, to the newer sleds of today.

Inside the museum are about 100+ different snowmobiles with no duplications, and another 40 unique machines in storage.  Throughout the museum are machines from companies still in operation, such as Ski-Doo and Arctic Cat, and those from manufacturers of yesteryear, including Moto-Ski, later bought by Bombardier – and Rupp.

Eastern Snowmobile Racing Hall of Fame

The Eastern Snowmobile Racing Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization originated by Paul T. Crane, who along with it’s board members on May 20th of 2017 at Crane’s Snowmobile Museum, began to recognize our first generation eastern snowmobile racers. Those original “Warriors of Winter,” the ones who started it all. The first chapter of the history of snowmobile racing was written right here in Lancaster, New Hampshire, the town that introduced the revolutionary Bombardier Ski-doo to America in December of 1959.  Read full story here…..
