What a treat for the motorcycle enthusiast . The owner Dale goes the extra mile to showcase motorcycles from it's begining's. Life like exhibits in a spacious venue.

We once visited a much earlier iteration of this museum when Dale Walksler had a Harley shop in Mount Vernon, IL. Later our town was one of the overnight stops for the Great American Race and we met up with and talked to the rider of his antique motorcycle entry. And we've seen Dale several times in Daytona. But this... More

If you love bikes, this place is not to be missed. Each vintage bike is in a little "setting" of the period, and incredibly, the ALL run. This makes other motorcycle museums seem feeble indeed. Plan to spend at least 2-3 hours here.

A unique collection of nice old motorcycles displayed very well. A nice way to spend an afternoon. You may have seen them on one of the "Picker" TV shows.

If you like antique motorcycles and cars then you will love this place! The owner is usually on site to start any machine you like and is frequently found riding around the grounds on one of the antique motorcycles found in his collection. It is wonderful!

This museum is a place where you will see motorcycles that you can't find very many places. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It's a great value for what you see and learn. Anyone who loves motorcycles will visit multiple times. We are planning a group ride back to the museum this spring.

The owner is very friendly, and always available to talk to you, show you things, etc. Worth a stop if you are in the area. Check to make sure they... More

This would also make a great destination for a week long motorcycle vacation , plenty of great roads including the Dragon is fairly close by. Good food and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Wheels Through Time and were amazed by the quality of every item in the museum! Dale makes sure that each motorcycle is in working condition; he even cranked a 100 year old motorcycle on the first try while we were there. Dale and the other staff are very friendly and welcoming, and make you... More
