  • My husband and I were on a road trip and my husband came across this on TripAdvisor. We decided to stop, thinking we would be here an hour or so. Wow, we're we wrong. We were here about 3 hours...

  • This is a Motorcycle lovers paradise. They also have vintage cars and race cars. There is an entire area donated to Lotus. The building is designed so beautifully and the motorcycles and vehicles are very well kept. You would probably need to spend 4-5 hours to view Museum thoroughly. They also have a nice gift shop. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is also a track at location. This day a private club was using it. I paid $33 total online for 2 tickets. If you would like 10% military discount you have to wait to pay on site. There is no military discount at store. Recommend visiting if in the area!!!
  • One of the nicest collections of motorcycles I have ever seen. If you like all generations and makes and models of motorcycles, you will love it. The history in this building is amazing. Take an audio tour if you can. There is 5 levels of exhibits, ample bathrooms, a banquet area for conferences and corporate gatherings. State of the art facility. Definitely for the motorcycle history buff.
  • This place was amazing - the incredible detail put into this place, the number of motorcycles, the unique layout of the building, the history of the bikes and cars! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 hours we spent walking through the display and observing the cars on the awesome track outside. Even with the July heat, we loved being able to stand on the bridges over the track as the cars raced around. They even have a lovely wooded path that leads to a gazebo where we sat for a bit. This large wooded area is in the middle of the winding track.
  • I don't even like motorcycles but this place was amazing! I decided to take my husband for a day trip, and it exceeded our expectations! The entire place is extremely clean, restrooms on every floor, and the outdoor area is beautiful!! It was so fun standing on the bridge watching the cars race. This place is a must see!
  • Plan to spend a whole day here. This place is massive I can’t remember how many stories. It was a rainy day and no one was there but a handful of people—and I still didn’t get to see everything—just got tired of walking after five hours. Amazing. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, you’ll never want to leave. I highly recommend to anyone who rides and wants to see how far bikes have come. They also have other toys, too - cars, boats, bicycles. What a true treasure.
