Owner description: 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.

I expected a sort of shed arrangement with rows of old motorcyles. But no. A vast modern complex with loads of parking, and EIGHT halls full of beautifully displayed bikes of every shape and age and make, with good descriptions. All well lit, easy to view, and with friendly reception (who even showed my wife where to sit when bored).... More

This is fantastic - every British bike ever made I should think. It is overwhelming in some ways. Just room after room of bikes. Bear in mind that this is British bikes only and I think that it loses something by that restriction but well worth a visit. Very helpful staff. Cafe only open lunch times? Best ham salad I... More

Far more bikes than I expected, a few similar to models I have owned, guess a model of every British Bike produced. Could be improved by video (TT etc) and interactive display. Worth the visit if you are a biker like me.

We took advantage of an Amazon offer simply because we had passed signs to the museum on numerous occasions and never called in. I anticipated a small collection of rather uninteresting old machines. Instead there were many large halls filled with an extraordinary number of bikes from the Victorian era to the present day, a shimmering, polished history of British... More

Very good museam, covering the British contribution to the motor bike world. Well laid out including sections on racing bikes. Could have done with more imput from foreign bikes so one can make a comparison. Large car park outside. easy to get too. A must foe biker's.

My friends & I first found this local jewel last Christmas when looking for a venue for our Christmas party night.The atmosphere & the food were fantastic & the DJ Mark Tollis went out of his way to personalise our evening. It was so successful that we will be returning this year.

The staff looked after us from the day we booked the room and even after the event had finished. Made us feel welcome. Could not do enough for us. Excellent value for money and we raised loads of money.

An amazing collection of motorcycles shows Birminghams strong history in the motorcycle world. After a disasterous fire this museum again rose from the ashes like the proverbial pheonix. Many sites like Amazon and wowcher offer vouchers for cheaper entrance to this venue. There is a lot of seats as you walk around if you need to rest. Many people loan... More
