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.

With 5 halls filled with thousands of models starting from the early 1900s and models that include police, military and racing motorcycles this is truly a informative and amazing sight to see. A great day... More

The motorcycle museum is crammed full of classic British bikes of all sorts! The staff were very friendly and helpful also. I spent two hours looking at the bikes not including the restaurant. The only negative was that the bikes are a little crammed in, it would be nice to be able to get a better look at some of... More

A fantastic collection of every conceivable bike manufactured in UK. Excellent displays of spotless machinery, a trip down memory lane for a bike enthusiast. The restoration of these vehicles is amazing. There is a restaurant for refreshments,if you need a break , then you can go back into the museum after you have eaten. Some young visitors were thoroughly enjoying... More

If like me you like motorbikes, this is heaven on earth. Lots of bikes from all decades. Spend hours looking at all the different models. Great place to visit on a wet day, good for families too. Make it a must to go and see.

Very helpful staff who ensured that we had everything we needed. It was well worth taking our own overhead projector as teh hire costs were horrendous. Food was excellent.

This museum has an amazing stock of British manufactured motorcycles dating right back to the beginning of motorised cycles. There are hundreds of mainly beautifully restored bikes displayed in five halls, linked by covered walkways. My only criticism is the apparent lack of logical grouping of the exhibits. While it's true that the first hall shows the broad history and... More

A brilliant display of (mostly) 2 wheel engineering and transport, especially considering a disastrous fire a few years ago. Tremendous value for money.

It was wonderful to see some great examples of British motorbikes before you even pay to enter. When we bought our tickets I asked the lady what had happened during the fire. She said "It happened in 2011 which was before I joined, so I don't know anything about it." I was shocked as signage clearly said the fire had... More
