  • Sammy and his Technician Bob, have been very welcoming to me over the years . Both of them are fully occupied in running the Museum, and keeping all the Museum bikes in fully restored condition. In addition to which Sammy attends many high profile events at which he shows and rides his bikes from the museum which keeps him very busy. Whenever I visit them, they are always actively working, maintaining and restoring several of the museum bikes, but they have always made time for a quick friendly chat. I don't like to take up too much of their time, so I am mindful of this and after a quick catch up, I head off to their very nice on site cafe, which is professionally run, with excellent food , drinks and service, by friendly helpful staff. The museum is in a beautiful rural location , within the New Forest area, and has beautifully maintained buildings and grounds. There is also a very nice selection of shops selling handicrafts etc. and whilst I'm looking at the fantastic bikes in the museum, my wife is able to have a look in the shops. She always finds something of interest. Outside there is also an excellent children's play area, with some animals such as Alpacas. There is something for everyone at The Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum , and as a destination to ride out to or drive to, it is well worth a visit 👍 Mike Dawson
  • A really interesting "living" museum as 99° of the exhibits are fully restored and working, some of the motorcycles are extremely rare and cannot be seen anywhere else. Another benefit is that the staff and owner are very knowledgeable and can provide a wealth of information to enhance your visit. Also a very nice cafe is there providing hot meals all day.
  • Great museum if you are remotely interested in off-road or trials motocycles. SM is still alive after years of off-road and trials racing and can often be seen at his museum. Costs about £7/8 entry fee. Nice cafe in the courtyard serving breakfast, brunch, sandwiches and cakes with teas and coffees etc. All very reasonably priced and served by pleasant staff. There are also various animals to keep kids amused outside from budgies and parakeets to donkeys.
  • Brilliant variety of bikes all through different time periods. Was given loads of advice from lovely guy on the till and you can see sammy working in his work shop, restoring some classics. Would recommend to everyone that loves bikes! Was heaven :) spent a good 6 hours here (between cafe, museum and animals) and would actually go again. Top place.
  • Superb display of motorcycles, all immaculately restored. No ropes or rails, just polite notices asking you not to touch! Best £8.50s worth of motorcycle nostalgia.
