“Full of interest and nostalgia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Visited recently,was amazed at the full content of the exhibits.It really makes you think of the wonderful pieces of engineering that made us the workshop of the world.Not forgetting the great contributions that other countries have made to this wonderful collection.
The adjacent restaurant is also a credit to this attraction.

“Sammy was one of my heroes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I used to make special trips to Sammy's motorcycle dealership because there was always something to see, the Museum is a logical extension of the whole ethos, fabulous old bikes and so many rare ones!

“Never knew that type of M/c.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I visited Sammy Millers Trust Museum in the New Forest in Hampshire. It had about 300 bikes but what a selection !!!! There where some types of engines that I had never heard of, a single cyclinder twin piston, two stroke engine?? By three different makers. Five cyclinder radial engine, similar to areo-engines.
As you know the New Forest is a lovely part of England and is well worth a visit. The museum buildings look modern, so they are bright and airy, which makes taking photoes much easier. As in all museums space is limited but by putting the bikes at an angle to the walkways you can isolate most of the bikes in one shot. It is arranged into groups, racing, very old, after WW1, WW2 modern etc. In each group there are last or last machine workable of it's type. This rings me to the standard of restoration, which is of the highest order. They have photoes of "How found" and then you see the finished produced before you, wonderful. Yes it is well worth a return visit and please dont forgether the cafe, maybe a limited menu but the stardard of cooking is excellent. DEB.
