Notable exhibits include the last Triumph Bonneville T140 out of the Meriden gates in 1983.HistoryBill Crosby, the museum’s founder, started collecting good examples of British motorcycles in 1960. The bikes were displayed at Syon Park until 1979 and then at a number of temporary locations until the site in Greenford was found.

Now run by volunteers as a charitable trust, the museum actively promotes educational visits and is affiliated to the British Motorcycle Charitable Trust.Future expansionThe museum is raising money for an extension to display another sixty motorcycles. The main building is planned as "The Home of Triumph " with special areas for other makes, military and police motorcycles.ExhibitsAll the motorcycles on display are in excellent condition and represent the best examples of all the well-known makes, such as BSA, Triumph and Norton as well as less well known makers including Coventry-Eagle and Rudge. A full inventory of exhibits is listed on the museum’s official web site and includes a number of unique prototypes, such as the development Triumph Trident and motorcycles that have been featured in the media.

  • Great museum with some gems and staff are very knowledgeable and happy to explain the mechanics and history of the exhibits. I wish we had more time but had to leave for a meeting only having seen half the museum, but now we have a good reason to come again!
  • Great museum! Some fantastic bikes and all the staff are more than happy to talk to you, had a personal guided tour by Pieter who told me the history of each bike but also the meaning and importance of each bike, couldn't recommend enough
  • Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the motorcycles. They were willing to answer your questions and take their time to talk to you. Nice selection of motorcycles too.
  • For the love of Triumph! Great collection of British motorcycles you'll see nowhere else! Highly recommended.
