Amazing collection
Apr 2021 • Family
Great collection and Noel was super friendly and had a good yarn with us explaining some of the history about the motorcycles.
Price for entry was cheap and would recommend as a must see item in Tamworth.

Nice bikes!
Feb 2021
As a lover of all things motorcycle, it was a pleasant escape from a rainy afternoon on our way through Tamworth to spend some time with Noel who was on duty. A varied collection of desirable machines over the eras on display, some of which I owned, once...
About 57 bikes to view.

Compact but high quality collection
Feb 2021
Great place to visit, even if you are only mildly interested in Motorcycles. The attendant Bill will happily show you around and tell you a story about every bike. The highlight is the hand built replica of Gottlieb Daimlers first ever motorcycle. Which Daimler called Reitwagen (the riding wagon).

Exactly what you expect
Jan 2021
Popped in for a visit, the person running the museum was very lovely and explained how to navigate the room. Clean, air-conditioned, and a bit of info next to each bike which was interesting to read. Also was out of the heat / rain, so that's a bonus!

Rated 4/5 ("very good") because it was exactly what I expected it to be - a pleasant way to spend 30 minutes, and a bit different to what I would normally do.

Interesting and well kept collection
Dec 2020
I'm not a motorbike enthusiast, but with only a few museums in town, I thought it would be interesting to check out, and I had time. The staff member told me all items on display were owned by a private collector, and them told me a bit about the bikes themselves & asked if I had any questions, he was quite enthusiastic about the bikes. It's just one medium sized room & you can see it all from the entrance, but everything is in immaculate condition with a few antique bikes added as well.

Compact but very interesting display of bikes
Nov 2020
This museum has bikes to make you droll. Think Norton Commando, Ducati, MV Augusta, Leverda etc plus a few interesting trials bikes like Ossa and Montessa. The bloke running the place was very friendly and knowledgeable. If you are a current or past biker with 30 mins or so to spend find time to drop in, it is well worth it.
