Our Group of Properties are referred to as Courtyard Properties, In addition to our huge Biker Pub with outdoor grilling located in the center of the group of our three museums which are located within walking distance of each other is a Courtyard. Each museum is different from the others in content, and each has a unique theme. Art In Motion consists of a very eclectic assortment of rare antiques and collectibles including a superb collection of majic related items, Jukeboxes, disc and cylinder Music Boxes, Tiffany Lamps & Special Clocks. This museum features a broad selection of rare items comprising many fields of interest. This is just a beginning. Our Foto/Excurion museum features a grand selection of dozens of motorcycles including Harleys, Indians, Triumphs and lots more. Their home for bikes features a beautiful stained glass ceiling and award winning artful leaded glass windows. There are spectacular antiques throughout the building. The work to make the surrounding area a biker village is in progress. Old bikes and antiques are found throughout the complex.Our patrons are always excited by the time they have seen the amazing array of "RARE ITEMS" including Musical Novelties such as a Violano Virtuoso (The World's 8th Wonder), Mechanical Singing Birds in Cages, and Classic 1940's jukeboxes. The items in one of the 4 museums date as far back as circa 1520. We attempt to provide a wealth of knowledge to younger people and children. We also enjoy learning from those who visit our museum. Our museums are a part of Courtyard Proporites and are complimented by other attractions in the group. In our complex, we have a free museum dedicated to active members of the U. S. Armed Services. There are other interesting sights near by, and no one should forget to visit the FDR's Little White House.NEWS-OUR NETWWORK OF COURTYARD PROPERTIES IS EXPANDING. Sept.1 Will mark the Grand Opening of our Follow The Leaders Wax Museum. The museum offers a learning experience to young and old. We present history beginning with a scene depicting the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The Presidential experiences before and after the era of FDR are a focus of the museum. We present military history, the civil rights movement, the world's most wellknown scientist and more.

From vintage toys to a one of a kind Tarzan from the early 1900s and the most fantastic collection of Motorcycles, this is a must see!

Visited Mr. Preston with my parents and my daughter. The mechanical displays from music boxes to slot machines were gorgeous. My Dad especially loved the motorcycles. Mr. Preston spent a great deal of time with us sharing his stories. We will definitely be back again in the summer for hamburgers. Thank you!

This museum has some of the rarest motorcycles I've ever seen. The best thing this place has to offer is the owner, Mr. Preston, who gave us a personal tour today. Genuine Southern hospitality!

I thought the Warm Springs bike museum was awsome! I loved all of the old guns they were pretty cool. I thought the service was great. My most favorite part of the museum was the great escape motorcycle and terminator 3 bike and the free passes! signed Logan 9 yr old

Thank you Logan. I will not forget this young man. My grandson shares his name, Logan. I enjoyed watching this little man as he wandered through the museum with eyes wide open and a big smile. He could hardly believe what he was seeing. He scrutinized lots of different antiques and other rare items as if he wanted to know... More

Our aim is to offer such an attraction that young and old can leave our museums and other areas of Courtyard Properties with a good feeling about what we have to offer. We manage to do this for most every visitor. This is possible because we have a large variety of top of the line hard to find collectibles and... More

This is more of one person's collection of stuff than and true museum. As is often the case with such places, there is an odor of mildew in the building which you get used to after the first few minutes. There is a great deal of vintage ephemera to look at as well as some rare motorcycles.

We strive to please as many visitors as possible with our broad selection of antiques and collectibles. This is our first mediocre rating over a three year period. I agree with the stated comments from this visitor. The collection is not the typical museum where things cannot be touched or provide a chance for interaction with the viewer. Also, it... More

If you love American Pickers, you'll love this place. You'll feel like Frank and Mike walking through Mr. Preston's collection. Some great motorcycles, especially if you love Triumph as I do. But there are too many great items here to mention. Old music boxes and player pianos are everywhere and they work. I love that it's more like your uncles... More

This viewer was delighted to find so many great items and especially motorcycles that can be easily qualified as being in the category of "RARE". Also, as noted, this is not the typical sterile museum. In fact, is our intention to have a collection that you can walk right up to and enjoy what you see up close and personal.... More
