The National Motorcycle Museums award winning facilities provides a truly unique venue for your conference, seminar, banquet or function. 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.

This Motorcycle museum is probably the best I have ever been too. It is crammed full of bikes from everywhere, but pays homage to the great British motorcycle. Walking around takes you back to your childhood, bringing back some very happy memories. Knowledgable staff available to chat, and a great shop and restaurant to complete the experience. Anyone who reckons... More

I didn't have a reason to come to Birmingham, but now I do! The Museum showcases the bikes of Britain, as a motorcycle enthusiast I love this place! The bikes are well restored to every conceivable detail! My only gripes would be the information signs by the motorcycles were hard to read and food in the restaurant was overpriced. I... More

What a fantastic collection of motorcycles. Spent a whole day here browsing around. The bikes are very well kept, and excellent descriptions. Staff knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, attentive and professional. If you're into bikes then this museum is not to be missed.

800 motorcycles (including three-wheelers) and great staff. Very pleasant and obliging. Roger, the guide is entertaining and knowledgeable. Get a coffee here. I'm aoffee lover and it was delicious.

This is a great museum if you love motorcycles. It records the history of the development of the motorcycle from the end of the 19th century through the 60 “Golden Years” of motorcycle production in the UK. They are about 800 motorcycles to see including some very rare and valuable examples. Not to be missed if you are interested in... More

Visited here on a Sunday morning. Reasonable entrance price for what you get to see with exhibits from 1902 to 2006. With so much history from our manufacturing past even if you are not interested in motorbikes it is still a real eye opener how many manufacturers we had that have now sadly gone. There is also a very nice... More
