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 exhibited at an exhibition at the museum. It was a great day, helpful staff on hand for anything we needed. The lunch provided was also brilliant

Well worth the entry fee and a donation, fantastic that it's recovered from the disaster of the fire. Excellent restoration engineering, bring back a lot of late sixties memories. If you are around Birmingham this is a must see.

Better than any service station if you ride a motorbike! Situated just off J6 of m42 this place makes a great alternative to a boring faceless service station if you love motorcycles. There is a cafe with no admission charge and free wifi, plus a free reception area with 50 or so bikes to have a look around at your... More

There is so much to see, 5 halls full of British motor cycle history. Maybe it is a bit for the purist, but if you have every ridden a pre-Japanese motorcycle, then you must visit if you're in the area. It's easy to get to and parking is free and plentiful. There's a good restaurant and coffee shop and the... More

Lots of bikes to view. Found the information about each bike rather low down to read and small,could have done with been larger print and/or higher up.I am a fit 47 year old but struggled to get down to read the info. Food looked nice in restaurant.

5 halls of exhibits. Well laid out but without a real obvious theme. Ancient and modern lumped together. This museum, though, has done a wonderful job resurrecting everything after their catastrophic fire in September 2003. Very helpful staff. Would be nice if mobile use could be restricted. Just happened to go in at the same time as one man who... More

First the good: the collection is very impressive, hundreds of bikes from the very first models to the most modern, all beautifully restored and maintained. Now the bad. This is not a museum. If you have prior knowledge or are an expert in motorcycles, you will get a lot out of this place. But if you are a novice or... More
