Breathtaking displays of literally hundreds of fully restored British motorcycles are on hand to provide an extra attraction to your delegates. We aim to offer more than a unique venue, however. We know that the success of any function is dependent upon the backing and support of an experienced and caring staff. 13 luxuriously appointed and newly renovated suites, ranging from just 5 to up to 1000 delegates offer the flexibility to suite most requirements. The National Motorcycle Museum is at the hub of the country’s motorway system and rail network, with Birmingham International railway station just five-minutes taxi ride away. Access from everywhere within the UK is direct and overseas visitors praise the excellent international services provided at Birmingham Airport, which is less than two miles in distance away. The National Exhibition Centre is also near the Museum complex and we offer vast car parking facilities.Many of our clients are ‘blue-chip’ companies from home and overseas. They come back to us time after time – we know you will too, and look forward to seeing you to discuss your requirements in the near future. « less

The machines in this museum are astonishing for what they represented and what has been lost. Birmingham must have been an awesome place [if you were a biker] back in the day. There are just too many bikes to look at - they are all so close together, sometimes difficult to appreciate each for the works of engineering art that... More

With my family we visited the NMM 6th September and also took advantage of an overnight stay at the Manor Hotel (three miles away) on their classic motorcycle breaks which include entry to the museum and breakfast. The hotel was impressive and the breakfast better than that! On to the Museum. As an elderly motorcyclist whose first bike was a... More

Im a life long biker, and was dissapointed with poor displays. There is no interaction at all, no hands on displays, not one bike to sit on. The displays are terrible, having to kneel down to read the A4 sized written displays is really poor. Youd have to crawl along on the floor to read them all! Please raise them... More

On our way to the Cotswolds my wife and I often break up our journey at the NMM. There is plenty of free parking, easy access to the museum. You can eat and drink in the museum cafe without paying to go into the museum - and yes I have paid and been in many times as i'm a keen... More

My partner and I travelled to the National Motorcycle Museum in the only 'proper' way to do it, on a motorcycle, our Harley Davidson, ok its not British, but it has two wheels. I would imagine that lots and lots of visitors also arrive on a bike, so why on earth did they not provide somewhere to park them, ideally... More

This is a must if you're in to bikes, there are rooms full of bikes from 1900 up to modern day, each bike is detailed and the history of the bike and manufacture is listed, along with pictures and stories, it shows how the first bikes evolved from push bikes with an engine fitted, sidecars, military, a great range of...

I treated my partner to a day out for his birthday as he is a motobike fanatic. Well worth every penny. A vast array of bikes of all ages, something to interest everyone even for a non-enthusiast. Great day.

A vast collection of British bikes from the last 100years. A cafe and restaurant, with reasonable prices, upstairs and cute little gift shop.

Not being a fan of anything on two wheels I was surprised with the exhibits on show and the way the museum is laid out. The museum also has conference facilities so i found delegates taking a break and looking round the museum. Many unique motorbikes there - another one was being unloaded outside during my visit. The staff are... More

My husband and I took our friends, one a big bike enthusiast to the museum, we had a lovely afternoon looking at the bikes and also enjoyed a cake and coffee in the restaurant. This visit was with a group on voucher, but have been before and had a good time each visit. A place for anyone to visit.
