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

What a great place! The collection is unbelievable. Not just the motorcycles themselves, but the contraptions that were built using motorcycles as a base. Dale is a gracious host and ready to spend time with anyone. The staff is friendly and courteous as well. Well worth the time spent.

We happened upon this museum by chance, seeing a small sign at roadside. It is not especially well-marked, but the entrance is along US 19 (Soco Road) roughly across the street from the Fire Department. The narrow drive passes through a tall black gate and a one-lane bridge over a creek. Parking is in an adequate dirt lot adjacent to... More

Dale the curator and motorcycle restorer deserves to be proud of this museum and its displays. He as well as the staff are involved and are there to answer all your questions and swap stories. This is the kind of place you hope will be around for many years and flourish. Not only are you looking at the bikes but... More

Wheels Through Time was the main reason for our visit to the Maggie Valley area, and it did not disappoint. Something cool every place you looked. Dale and staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Even someone like me, who doesn't know a lot about the different bikes, can enjoy a visit here.
