  • I had the privilege to show me around by a very nice volunteer Mr. Armstrong. There is a whole collection of motorcycles and it is the most impressive I've seen to date. To really appreciate your visit, give yourself a good 4-5 hours and Yes, it's worth the trip! Bravo!

  • Well worth the trip. Great collection and friendly staff. Lost one star due to lack of Buells
  • Went there and was enjoying myself taking pictures and looking at the history. An affiliate from a group and his friend approached me and tried to grab my phone for they wanted to see if the picture had their patch in it. Said I'll look and he said better delete it. Got argumentative but deleted it and told him if you don't want your patch in a picture leave ur vest outside. The museum was quick to respond and made right by me.
  • Fantastic collection of motorcycles! It’s refreshing to see the YouTube videos of the bikes running. So many of us vicariously owning each of these bikes through your dedication, passion and attention to detail. You get it or you don’t; and don’t try to explain it to those that don’t! Look forward to making the trip from Virginia to see the bikes.
  • Walking into the museum for the first time, I was overwhelmed. I think it might have been for me the equivalent of seeing Angkor Wat...well, the Angkor Wat of motorcycling. When I was a kid back in the 60's, we had a family friend who needed to store some of his belongings while he moved to a new home. Among the stored items were boxes of old issues of motorcycle magazines. I poured over those magazines every chance I got...reading reviews and stories and dreaming of owning one of the beauties I saw on the glossy pages. They were an escape from the trials and tribulation of childhood. Years went by and, in my 20's I bought my first Honda, then a Suzuki..then a longs dry spell of being without until just a few years ago I bought a succession of Harleys and took up the freedom of riding again. I had heard about the museum and finally had the opportunity to get over there. I walked in and felt awash with the nostalgia I had for sitting at my kitchen table and living through the images and stories of the motorcycles in those magazines. They were there, in real life! Motorcycle Eldorado! I could spend days there.
  • Wonderful collection of motorcycles
