Dale and Matt Walksler and the entire staff at Wheels Through Time are very gracious, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with guests. They answered questions and gave talks about the different items. All the bikes run! We saw Dale start up and ride one of them to the work area of the museum. After you pay, your hand is stamped so... More

Visited the Wheels Through Time museum last week 8/24/14 and had a fantastic time. Dale Walksler and his son Matt run this gem on the North Carolina side of the smokey mountains. The first thing that hit us is how friendly and approachable the staff is. You could literally spend days and days in this museum learning the stories behind... More

We visited Wheels Through Time Museum recently. What a great place to go to see all kinds of motorcycles, etc. We were in there at least 2 hours, left for lunch and went back. We still don't feel like we saw everything there was to see. For an afternoon walk through time, it is so worth going.

Great place to visit if you are into motorcycles. This place as a lot of older bikes, and each one runs. We really enjoyed our visit here and would go back again.

My dad thought he'd be here for an hour. He ended up spending nearly eight there. This museum in Maggie Valley, N.C., is the result of one man's passion for motorcycles - chiefly, Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Though he has some rare Indians, Hendersons, Elks and Daytons, it's Harley he clearly prefers. In fact, you might find yourself wishing for your own... More

This museum is nothing short of fantastic! My family and I were walking around enjoying the exhibits and we hear the pop - pop - pop noise of an old bike firing up and here comes Dale Walksler driving around the corner on an early 1900s bike. He drove all through the museum. Later in the day we had a... More
