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

A must see for anyone who love motorcycles. A history from the beginning up to now are presented in excellent displays. We had the pleasure of watching a 1930' era cycle be started and ridden outside. A thrill.

This museum leans HEAVILY towards Harley Davidson motorcycles. No trains, trucks, and few cars. The motorcycles that were there were in poor condition for the most part.
