I took a motorcycle safety course so I got in free. After looking at all the motorcycles and displays I would have paid double. Since the course I have been back 2 times.

Great place to visit if you love motorcycles and history. I had not read up on visiting and went with my significant other who expressed an interest as a motorcycle owner. I enjoyed the history behind the creation of motorcycle, the part played in several movies and how one could enjoy all the exhibits without the crowds. Volunteers were very... More

I was surprised to see so many motorcycles in one place. Over 500 bikes, from 1900 till present day. Full collection of Indian bikes, choppers, Harley and many others from around the world. Famous bikes from the movies like Tron and Hell rider!

This is the best motorcycle museum I have ever been to. The amount and quality of items are just remarkable. The uncluttered layout makes it a joy to look at all the amazing bikes. Plan on spending a few hours looking over the two floors of motorcycle artifacts. A must see on any riders bucket list.

The shear volume of artifacts at this museum make it remarkable. I went here with my son's scout group and received a tour from one of the founders of the msueum. What a remarkable story of collecting, passion and history. The gentleman who toured the scouts through the museum did a great job and we appreciate his taking time out... More

Imagine seeing the famous Indian brand motorcycle, but wait - seeing one from every year dating back to the early 1900s. They have many early bikes from companies that only were in business for a couple years. As you would expect, they have many bikes from Harley, BMW, Triumph, Honda, and all the other brands. Then they have custom bikes.... More

This place is a hidden jewel. It is in the town of Newburg, slips into the surrounding neighborhood, and is easy to miss. Once you find it, which is easy after you know its there, you walk into the past of motorcycle history and Legends. They have the first of MANY, and the entire line of Indians starting for the...
