So much fun to go through the museum, we had to go two days to see everything. Not only were the motorcycles impressive, I was blown away by the amount of posters and articles available to view. Very hands on, you could look through books and old articles at the museum. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I look... More

If you like motorcycles and want to know about the American history of motorcycles this is the place to go. This is Dale Walksler's passion and it shows. He is there (as are others) to answer questions and to make this an A-1 museum experience

We visited the museum in July, 2014. It was more than I was expecting. If you do not like motorcycles you may not enjoy it.. We watch the TV program, "What's In The Barn?", so it was fun going through and seeing motorcycles that were on the program. As your walking through you find yourself recalling where the bike came...

While we are not major racing fans, we do like old cars. Wheels through time has everything relating to cars from the earliest on. This is one man's collection and it is very impressive. Our 16 year old son enjoyed it as much as my husband and I and various cars prompted some wonderful conversation among the three of us.

The place was huge and even going through it at a good pace it still took a few hours. The only problem was that inside the place our phones kept roaming and killed our batteries (Verizon) plus using it as a camera. Our bad :)

Not your average "museum" Loved the displays - set up like an old shop might look, no "do not touch" signs or velvet ropes. The owner was on site talking to visitors, starting motorcycles and hanging out. Fun place to visit - put it on you to-do list at Maggie Valley!

Our third trip to Wheels Through Time. Can (and do) spend hours in there. We were lucky enough to be there when Dale Waksler was there and able to see many motorcycles started and ridden. He was very personable and as busy as it was, took time to look at a picture of my husbands antique bike and just to... More

This is truly one of the most fabulous places we have visited! Dale has created more than a museum! The vast majority of his over 250 motorcycles and cars, as well as some vehicles that defy description, are in original, as found cosmetic condition. Nearly every one of these very rare vehicles is in running order---and Dale has ridden them... More

It's a motorcyclists dream museum! Just imagine how many stories are packed into this Museum. Each vehicle works. Every turn of your head you are engulfed in "time". A must if your love transportation especially motorcycles. It's a bit pricey but worth your trip.
