  • Breath-taking so much to see and Dale keeps adding new things. This was my 1st visit and my husbands 2nd. Both of us enjoyed every thing about this museum the decor, the staff and especially Dale. I want to thank Dale for taking the time to welcome us. During our conversation I told Dale how we stayed at the Jonathan Creek Inn for 2 extra days to just visit his Museum (museum closed Tues. &Wed.) Explained the restaurant "Joey's"(across from the Inn) was closed on Thursday's and that I had not eaten. So Dale recommended "Pops' Eggs and Grits" Thank you, it was awesome and the folks delightful . We did get to see and talk to Pops and his wife. Best breakfast in town. I truly had a awesome day and thank you for sharing the museum to us and others to enjoy.
  • Great Museum especially if you want to see a lot of great motorcycles and pieces from the periods of time when these motorcycles were being driven daily. There is even a plane and some great cars. It was amazing to see the people from the show also. The staff is very friendly. And unlike most car and motorcycle you can really get close to these beautiful motorcycle's to really see these machines closer than ever.
  • Old bike overload! Wonderful experience, staff was friendly & knowledgeable. Dale Walksler greeted folks, started an old racer ( hide the women and children) and just made sure everyone had a good time. No better way to spend a day off.
  • I love this place and I don't even ride motorcycles. This museum is a top notch tribute to those who love these two-wheel beasts and how the machines evolved. The cycles are not trapped behind glass and these babies are right out there for you to touch (Carefully). Don't expect a sterile atmosphere because as soon as you pass through the doors your nostrils are assaulted with the odor of gas and oil. Despite the carefully staged chaos everything is clean and surprisingly artfully displayed. Some of the cycles look as if the owner had just parked them and will soon return. The silver-plated oil-catch pans made me smile. There are vintage cars, too for those who like four-wheeled transport. The owner of the museum is ready to meet and greet-when he's not starting up one of the vintage cycles for the visitors. Take your time when visiting this museum as there is so much to see. Go back and look again-there are many treasures waiting to be discovered for those who take time to admire these beauties.
  • Soo many bikes and just a really cool set up. Dale walks around and talks to visitors. Just a cool place for motorcycle lovers
