This museum knocks the spots off the National Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham, which is rather dull in comparison. Sammy's Museum is a fantastic collection of bikes, surrounded by a colourful display of motorcycle and general motoring memorabilia. The bikes have all been restored to beautiful condition. Most look brand new. It has to be the best museum in Britain. The... More

Visited just the café for an eagerly anticipated cream tea with friends. The cream and jam were fine- but the scones were hard and had to be sawn. Sorry to say-Quite the WORST CREAM TEA I HAVE EVER HAD! Good job the company was a lot better.

As other reviewers have said, amazing collection of bikes. Lots of rare bikes, all in lovely condition. There are short explanations for most of them which are interesting too. Some other old machines too, for example, some Singer sewing machines. Good cafe, playground for the kids and a few farm animals to look at. There are also three small craft... More

If you are interested in British bikes (and early bikes generally) you will enjoy visiting the museum. There is a great selection of the rare, interesting and iconic to spend 2-3 hours wandering amongst the exhibits. How long really depends on how interested you are. All the bikes are readily accessible for you to have a close inspection and there... More

One of the best museums I have visited. A warm welcome from an informative chap who was happy to chat about the exhibits, and what exhibits there are!! Some of the world's rarest motorcycles sit right there in front of you, no glass cases or barriers, so you can squint at the details to your heart's content. Things I had... More

Great day out!!! As an avid bike enthusiast I could not fault the collection of bikes on display. Actually had a chat to Sammy Miller himself, who is really down to earth and quite willing to mingle with the visitors and answer questions or give some history about his career, which just adds value to the experience. Entry fees are... More

folks, read the three negative reviews a little critically is all I can say. I cannot fathom how anyone would not think this an exceptional museum and great value. My wife and I found the place by chance while meandering through the countryside. My wife went and had a coffee in the warm cafe area and read her book while... More
