We thought we would be there for a couple of hours, we stayed 4 1/2 hours. The Indian display with every year on display was impressive. The information on the history of the Indian motorcycle was extensive. The Harley display was good, however not as informative or as extensive, room for improvement.

I saw this museum on a roadside attractions map when planning a trip driving from Pittsburgh to Maine and thought it would be a nice stop to get out and walk around a bit. It's a few miles off the highway and we actually thought we were lost since it's back behind a housing project. There is tons of parking... More

I was impressed. The amount of motorcycles on display was more than I expected. Harleys, Indians, Excellsior Hendersons, Aces, dirt bikes, racing bikes, touring bikes, custom bikes. And the history! They even had motodromes inside. I liked the fact that they had people walking around ready to answer any questions and to give you more details and back stories. 2... More

This museum is a must see for the motorcycle enthusiast or motorized vehicle history buff. The museum staff is very knowledgable and we even got to meet the founders family. The visit was very enjoyable.

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.

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
