If you like bikes you must see this museum. I have seen a few and this one really impressed me. Great volunteers and museum staff were really helpful and directed me to the most impressive bikes. Indian gallery is really something. Great museum overall and I will definitely be back.

great place to look at motorcycle history if you are a bike lover or not. Two floors or unbelievable bikes. from tiny minature bikes to the long history of the evolution of the Indian to beautiful choppers and movie classics.

This is a must see! My husband wanted to go here on his first trip to NY. (From Half Moon Bay, CA) My thoughts "oh no ANOTHER motorcycle museum!?!?!" We drove 2.5 hours out of our way to go, and it was worth it! Great display set up, A LOT of interesting bikes with short overviews. The Indian motorcycle exhibit... More

It's a really fun museum and a must see in the NYC area. I don't even like motorcycles and I loved it. Plan a visit to the Liberty Street headquarters of George Washington in the Historic City of Newburgh and get a snack on Liberty St before taking a $2 ferry ride over to DIA Beacon!
