  • Must see museum. Thousands of motorcycles in collection. Awesome display and layout of floors and views of motorcycles and cars. Able to watch the Porsche Driving School and track in action immediately behind the building.
  • Absolutely stunning, breathtaking and overwhelming. We walked in and just stopped flat-footed gazing at what awaited us. Our family, teens, adults including grandparents spent 4 hours there then returned the next day for another dose. An addition is opening and we'll return to see what they've included.
  • If you are into bikes or cars this is a bucket list item. Simply the most amazing bike museum I've ever been to. Mr. Barber was actually there and talked to everyone like he was your long time friend. They treated us like royalty as our jaws were agape at all the amazing things to see. I've never seen a Briton before and they had all the Britons that exist except one there. And they even rode them around the track. This place is amazing and I'm going back in a few months for the AHRMA races.
  • If you are a gearhead and motorcycle enthusiast this place is Nirvana!! Best most complete collection of motorcycles on the planet. Best docent tour anywhere.!!!. Our guide new every bike on display (600+ bikes) down to the carb needle size. They have a representative ( working motorcycle) of every bike and motorcycle development from the late 1800's to date. We spent 5+ hours and had to quit because our brains hurt from all the info. The grounds and building are a work of art and we spent 20 mins just watching the Porshe racing class work on the great racetrack in back of the museum. Worth a trip to Birmingham from anywhere in the world for a true motorcycle lover. PS. also an incredible collection of Lotus's. And classic outboard motors. Who knew?!!!!
  • Been there multiple times...wonderful each time. Each display is open for scrutiny with no barriers, and there are hundreds of motorcycles and several rare cars. The building is beautiful, modern, and climate controlled. Looking forward to going to the vintage festival coming up.
