My husband became a life time member. I thoroughly enjoyed the several hours spent at the museum. Top quality exhibits.

If you want roped off areas & "Do Not Touch" signs, this is not for you. I left with grease on my hands, & exhaust in my lungs!

We cannot say enough good things about this museum. You're made to feel welcome and appreciated from the minute you walk in the door to the time that you leave. The collection of antique bikes is like no other!! The other items such as photos, posters, etc. are also very interesting. We had the opportunity to chat with Matt and... More

Amazing collection, the history is cool. There's something for every gear head, even a plane! Husband was thrilled! Very friendly staff, and if you're lucky like we were, Dale will start up one of the antique bikes since he makes sure they all run!

Have visited many times, loaded with wonderful old motorcycles and some cars. Staff very helpful and knows their stuff. Owner usually around and available to chat. Most everything in there is in running condition and is kept so on site. Always take out of town guest there, blast from the past, and a history lesson.

My husband said, "completely unbelievable"!!! My teenage boys loved it. Make this trip happen. My boys helped the owner Dale move 2 yale motorcycles from 1905. The only 2 known to be in existence. These bikes drove across the country. What a wonderful place. So much history.

We've been to Wheels Through Time several times now, and always see something new. The owner Dale Walksler is normally there, interacting with visitors, answering questions and giving details on bikes. This is billed as "The Museum That Runs" and Dale is prone to start up a bike and tear off down a row to demonstrate these old bikes ...a... More

Ive been to a few museums in my time but NEVER imagined anything like this! We spent hours there and I still don't think I saw everything! Looking forward to going again this year! This is without a doubt the most complete collection of historic bikes and cars that I have EVER seen. Dale was an amazing host and would... More
