I have read about this museum on internet forums and even have seen Dale on TV but this was way better than I thought it would be. My brother-in-law and I stopped on our way back from Alabama and were really impressed. Most of the motorcycles were just as Dale found them except that they all run. They go from... More

If you are staying in Maggie Valley this is a great place to spend a day. Dale is a like a kid in a candy store, he is always somewhere in the museum explaining the intracacies of some bike or car to someone or driving one of his vintage machines through the place. The amount of old motorcycles and cars... More

We spent one night in Maggie Valley on our way to Pennsylvania..my fiance loves the velocity show "What's in the barn" so we had to visit Wheels through Time...what an awesome surprise..the curator, Dale, was out front when we arrived, he greeted us as we entered the museum. The staff, many are volunteers, were very friendly and informative, answering our... More

A museum worth going out of way for if you are not in the immediate area. Had a very enjoyable time.

Ok, we were traveling through North Carolina on our way to South Carolina. My husband kept seeing the brown signs indicating that "Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum" was coming up. He abruptly took the exit and we were headed to the museum. We watch Dale's show on tv, so this was a must see place. When we arrived, there were... More

Neither my wife or I are motorcycle buffs ... but we both thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Spent several hours here today and hope to do a return visit. Fantastic, one-of-a-kind museum.

We learned about the Wheels though time Museum from the Velocity channel program called "What's in the barn ?"The program features Dale Walksler and his son going all over the country in search of rare American motorcycles. He seems well respected in the motorcycle world. We just retired and decided this was on our bucket list even though we don't... More

I'm not into motorcycles in anyway, however, I am deff a gearhead and loves anything that runs on dinos. The place is huge and full of the coolest bikes. There are some of the rarest to old service bikes, including my favorite a delivery bike! Also, when I meant huge, it really is. This is the only place in MV... More

Large museum with motorcycle, outboard motors, cars, trucks, and other unusual motorized vehicles. The museum definitely takes you through a lot of history. Nice displays of all the items. Take your time and try to soak in the real history, not something out of a book.

The owner is unbelievably rude. We brought a large group of people for a tour and there were some minor miscommunication with him and our administration, and he yelled and made a huge scene. He called my director "pathetic" and out administration "worthless". Our organization is INTERNATIONAL. If we were "pathetic" and "worthless" we wouldn't be running on 34 years... More
