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...

I visited the Motorcyclepedia Museum with a friend a few weekends ago. It is AMAZING. I will bring my fiance very soon as he is a motorcycle enthusiast and I think he would love it. The vast history and memorabilia is amazing. I didn't know the varied history of two-wheeled and a few three wheeled bikes. Simply fascinating to see... More

We went here on Saturday, a friend had told us it's a must see! Well what a pleasant surprise, they have movie motorcycles, from Saving Private Ryan, Ghost Rider, I think 3 Steve Mcqueen movies, Captain America, and and etc. etc. It simply great! And then the Indian Gallery which has a display of Indian Motorcycles from the year 1901... More

I took my husband here as part of a getaway weekend and he loved it. They have a great collection of antique and modern bikes that are exhibited in a very organized fashion. The museum also had a show called the wall of terror which was thrilling. A man rode his bike on the sides of a cylinder wall and... More

It's in a somewhat rough part of Newburgh, but don't let that dissuade you from visiting. There is ample parking right in front of the museum. The museum is much larger than it looks when you first drive up because there is a basement level. The collection is massive! We spent about 3 hours there, probably equally split between the... More

This is a fantastic museum if you love motorcycles. It is very well laid out, and there is an excellent mix of fully restored machines as well as original 'survivors'. There are hundreds of old and one-off special bikes here. Too many wow moments to remember, but the collection of Indian motorcycles must surely be the best in the world,... More
