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.

It will far exceed whatever you expect. If you've ever had a motorcycle or even a scooter you will be in heaven. If you haven't you will still be amazed.

This is the most comprehensive motorcycle museum in the world. The presentation provides a historical perspective that will interest almost everyone for at least awhile. The architecture of the building is also impressive. It is definitely worth a visit if in Birmingham.

It's an enormous parking area at Barber's. Unless you're hoping to camp there overnight, I can't imagine that parking your R/V would present any kind of problem.
