Check out the model motorcycles on display. There is an incredibly detailed "rat bike" that will absolutely blow you away. Everything in this museum is first rate! Well worth the trip.

Lots of bikes, all kinds not just one brand or another. Motors, and other unique parts. It was fun to see some of the bikes that I have had in the past. Some of what we think is "new" is just an update of what someone did before. Interesting

This place is a MUST SEE for anyone with passion for the art, history, and RIDE of the motorcycle and its long diverse history! Two reasonable hotels and a huge J&P CYCLES retail superstore within just a few minutes make this a great destination for bikers!

The collection and display are amazing. They have over 400 motorcycles and early bicycles on display plus hundreds of other items. For... More

There's a Macdonalds next... More

Seriously a wonderful museum. I am not a motorcycle aficionado by any means, but the history held within the National Motorcycle Museum is incredible. Over 100 years of motorcycle history reside here. Over 400 motorcycles from around the world, Germany, Italy, England, India, US. Advertisements, posters, movies, Evel Knievel, Easy Rider. It's all here. We came with relatives from England... More

Original, custom, restored and unrestored bikes. Features on Ed Roth and others. Really a first class place to go and see bikes. Well worth the trip. It... More
