The wheels through time museum is the best motorcycle museum anywhere! Dale is a very interesting and knowledgeable guy. He has quite a collection and is always adding to it. I have been there several times and will go back every time I get to Maggie Valley.

The real deal here. Motorcycles in all stages of restoration, many are very rare models. Owner, Dale, is a great host, and will even start up a few of the engines from time to time. Plan to spend a minimum of 2 hours here to get a good taste; 3 to 4 hours if you are an enthusiast.

Great place and really good to meet Dale who runs and enjoys the place. So many interesting bikes which were brought to life by Dale running up a selection of these amazing machines. you can spend hours absorbing the photos and stories that live in the place. if you're into bikes it's a must.

I was visiting my wife in Concord, NC and always watch "Whats in the Barn". So we decided to make a trip to see and hopefully meet Dale from the show. We drove about 2 hrs and found the place tucked away behind a beautiful creek and a 1-lane bridge. We were promptly greeted inside. They were very warm and... More

My husband, a motorcycle enthusiast, was excited as a kid arriving at the museum. He loved to see all the motorcycles parked in the lot. There were hundreds of motorcycles and Dale started an antique motorcycle which is part of his notoriety, along with the television show "What's in the Barn". Our only complaint - not one single BMW motorcycle... More

I visited this museum with much anticipation and it did not let me down. I toured the museum for 4 hours on a Saturday and met the owner, Dale. Very nice man and so friendly. During my visit, he was going around to various antique motorcycles in the museum and starting them up. He also would ride them thru the... More
