The National Motorcycle Museum is a place that should not be missed. My wife and I spent over 4 hours there and I plan on returning. The museum features many historic and important motorcycles and displays. The folks running the museum are extremely friendly and helpful. The price of admission is cheap for what is provided.

About 45 minutes northeast of Cedar Rapids is the National Motorcycle Museum. We spent about 1 hour in the museum and, even though we aren't motorcycle enthusiasts, we found it to be pretty interesting. You'll be able to see how the motorcycle has evolved over the years, and there's definitely more of an emphasis on American motorcycles over their Japanese... More

We detoured through Anamosa so my husband could "check out" the bikes. The kids enjoyed the bikes - and learned a little as well from the excellent informative displays. We only had a short time available and if you are an affecionado you should set aside at least 2 hours. My husband was impressed by the huge collection of bikes... More

If you have the time and like vintage motorcycles, check it out. Some really cool bikes but some ordinary bikes there. Nice collection overall with good descriptions.

This place is unbelievable. If you are a biker, this is the closest to heaven to will get while on earth. If you are not a biker, there is so much history being told here that you will get lost in all there is to learn. Plan on several hours, lots of pictures, and eye pain with all there is... More

Cheap and very cool. Tons of motorcycles, relics, and toys to look at could have probably spent the day there. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This place is "all things motorcycle" displayed in a top-shelf manner. Our Sept. 2014 visit to this museum (as we passed thru Iowa) was the 3rd time I was there - and this visit was just as good as the first. Friendly staff, reasonable entrance fee, an outstanding collection with excellent display signs. The changing exhibits at the museum are... More
