Owner description: A motorcyclist's dream, this museum has 750 vintage and modern motorcycles displayed on walls, two-tiered platforms and just about everywhere you look. The bikes are displayed randomly, rather than by date and year, adding an element of unpredictability to the viewer's experience.

“World-Class Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Repeat visitor to Barber Museum, often treat out of town friends there. Nothing like it anywhere else. A world-class collection of motorcycles and early race cars only George Barber could assemble. Complete evolution of one of a kind piston technology and performance. The architecture and exhibit design is uniquely astonishing. Great gift shop and free parking outside the door. Barber Park host several must see national race events and festivals throughout the year. Many local motorcycle clubs hold events there. Paddock Club on the track offers fine cuisine and many star sightings at race time. Master artist lawn sculptures and pristine landscaping. A true destination, don't miss it.

“Absolutely top shelf!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Unbelievable amount of motorcycles, all displayed in a fashion that lets you get close up and personal!
Beautiful grounds, well maintained museum, and super friendly staff.
Admission price very reasonable and parking is close, easy, and free.
Well done, and well worth a visit!

“Best motorcycle exhibit ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This is a truly wonderful place. The design of the building and the way you walk thru the exhibits of motorcycles is unique. If you have any interest in motorcycles this is the place to go.

“I could spend the day here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Went here for the first time this year. I will definitely go again. Took my young sons with me. They love bikes but even they couldn't make it through the whole thing. It is huge. I'm pretty sure there isn't another collection of bikes like this anywhere. You need at least a few hours there if not half the day for the true enthusiast.

“Absolutely Amazing! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

I am not a big fan of motorcycles, so when my husband suggested we stop here, I was not thrilled. Let me just say, I was dead wrong! This is an absolutely amazing collection of beautiful and rare bikes and the most incredible Lotus cars I have ever seen. The building is 5 stories high and you can take your time and see everything as you look out over a road course where they hold races or porsche car driving training. Don't miss this!
