This is located in beautiful Maggie Valley, near a pretty stream, with picnic tables. If anyone in your party likes motorcycles, this is mandatory. Others in the party can either sit on the scenic grounds or go to the very nearby shops. The owner and employees are very friendly. He even gave my brother a sidecar ride in one of... More

My husband is a motorcycle enthusiast. We was simply in heaven. I was totally unfamiliar with the history of motorcycles, but I enjoyed it too. Some of the motorcycles had been restored, but most were in "as found" condition. I especially liked the Verita car ... It was very unusual. This museum is well worth the time, if you like... More

My husband loved it and it was also interesting for a person who is not very mechanically-minded. I liked the history of it because supposedly most of these vintage bikes actually run. I believe that claim because the man who started the museum, periodically started up one antique bike or another and took off through the museum, out the door,... More

From the minute we walked through the door it felt warm and inviting. We were greeted by one of The curators of the museum and made to feel very welcome. My wife who had no interest in motorcycles was also very impressed.

WTT has all American-made motorcycles from throughout the history, and all of them run. I am a new rider and my husband has been a rider all of his adult life. This place has something for both of us. The owner and his family mingle with all of the visitors and invite you to ask questions, they also share really... More

This museum is dedicated mainly to the amazing ways that Harley-Davidson cycles and engines have been enjoyed and used since the beginning of the company. There are also a great many other early motorcycle examples on display as well as some beautiful auto restorations. One of my favorite things about much of the museum was the idea of please touch...

I have been to museums on 4 continents, there is nothing to compare. This is a museum, education center and an antique motorcycle / car restoration shop. I would advise you to visit this work of art at least twice to take everything in you will see, plus enjoy the mountains. Vintage motorcycles dominate the displays, with a dozen or... More

Tucked away off the main drag in Maggie Valley, this small museum packs a huge selection of many of the most historic motorcycles ever made. The focus here is not on the most famous or the most popular. It is a walk through history to see some of the machines you would have seen in any time period of our... More

This museum will bring big boys emotional tears to life! I traveled back in time and was able to see many great mechanical ideas and the revolution that got us here. Thank you for putting this together. America is greater than I thought.
