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

This was my second visit to this fine museum. For a motorcycle person like myself, it's one of the rooms in heaven, maybe second only to the Barber museum in Alabama. The collection is very comprehensive and the bikes appear to be well maintained. My biggest complaint is how photo unfriendly the layout and lighting is. Clearly, they've outgrown their... More

This is an incredible collection that goes on forever. I've seen motorcycle museums all over the country and this is a true cross the board collection that is impressive. From Rat Fink to Captain America this is an overwhelming collection of motorcycles and related collections. Well worth a vacation destination.

From the outside you would never know this museum houses a huge collection of motorcycles, advertising, pop-art, videos and pictures all about motorcycles. The motorcycles are accessible to view from all sides so you can up close and personal to them. We spent almost three hours there and we not motorcyclists.

This is a great stop for all motorcycle enthusiasts young and old. They have motorcycles and memorabilia from every era and segment of motorcycling history. We only had about two hours to spend here and that was not enough. I wish we would have had more time.
