  • The place is amazing,and I saw a huge number of motorcycles which were made in past century,and has excellent outlook. It is a very good experience. And my only suggest ion is that it will be appreciated and attract the visitors if the museum could have a separate section for the visitors to seat into the motorcycles model to feel the motor and also take photos,then it should be able to enhance our interactions with the motorcycles.
  • The two floors we originally went to go see were closed they kept apologizing because those weren't the only floors closed. There is no guides to help just apologize for lack of floors open. Vending machines will eat your money. Half a museum view with full prices. I emailed the company over a week ago absolutely no response one way or the other. Not only will we never be back I will show my pics and sing my experience from the mountain tops
  • The place is amazing... wish we would have got a chance to spend more time at the museum we only had 30 minutes. You really need a couple of hours. The track is awesome... we got to do a few laps around it during a stop over on the Bandit Run
  • Excellent facilities, beautiful landscaping and scenery, and a very safe track (even for children). My family has been going to the track for more years than I can count (sport bike racing) and have never been disappointed!! Great place to camp and enjoy the events. The museum is like no other and is well worth the money. This is a place that no matter what the event you may be attending or for whatever reason, you will not be disappointed in any way! Mr Barber really out did himself and all of the staff are more than kind, courteous, and helpful. Enjoy....
  • I reckon any motorcycle enthusiast could die happy after visiting this - apparently the largest motorcycle museum in the world? Walking around I just found myself going 'Oh my God' and (expletive deleted) constantly as I came upon another and another perfect best ever example of a bike I lusted after in my younger daze - I think I only counted maybe 6 Vincents including a Black Lighting exact replica - but. most Americans didn't linger there - they were more interested in the complete history of Harley Davidson and Indian in perfect examples. Suffice to say - if you like motorbikes, you Really want to come here! Other stuff - oh - the complete set of racing Lotus cars - world champion Formula 1 cars - I thought I even glimpsed one of those rarest $25M Ferraris - so yeah stuff to look at - (groan)!!!
