By itself, this excellent museum is not a destination point. It is however, worthy of a detour if one is in the region.

The displays include a room of several custom bikes which then flows into a very well crafted display and history of the motorcycle with rooms on two floors of historical motorcycles. There are many brands represented here and several bikes are over 100 years old.

Kids 8 and above will like this. One can linger for 45 minutes and see what is offered.

Ten bucks to enter for the first person, then five per person after that. There are several discounts offered; my incomparably lovely wife and I took the senior price.

They have some incredible rare motorcycles on display, really impressive. It is a small museum but worthy. The staff is excellent, they take the time to show you certain motorcycles and explain the history of them if you ask. I was very surprised to see the rare Honda motorcycles along with the 2 Vincents and of course HDs. Absolutely worth stopping in for any motorcycle fan.

How can you go through Sturgis without a visit to the Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame? Lucky for us, due to Covid, we arrived when it opened and were the only people there! Three floors of motorcycle history and cool bikes. We made a short video for our grandson's birthday there as well showing him some of the bikes. A fun experience; glad we went!

Emma and crew have worked hard to bring the museum back up to speed! The displayed are planned out well, every one was very helpful. A fun gift shop, plenty of bike, car ?and RV parking! Check out the art work, and collectibles. A very worthwhile experience.

We are not bikers or anything but this was an amazing museum. My husband who does not care 4 museums enjoyed it just as much as I did. It was very impressive. You can take pictures which is cool. It was just a short visit for us, which is what we like. The only complaint I would even have would be that there are stairs you have to go down to see all of the museum, which does not work for everyone.

When we arrived at 3:50, allowing about an hour to see the museum, we were disappointed to see that it closes at 4. When we suggested to the very unpleasant employee that it would be best if the website were accurate (it says the museum closes at 5), she rudely replied "You should have called".
We quickly walked through the museum, which seems very disorganized, without any exhibits about the Rally.

Disappointed in the reviews for this "MUST SEE" attraction. If you take a small building and add a bunch of old motorcycles, you can call it a museum. I bet an old biker came up with this idea to attract motorcycle enthusiasts and earn a living.
I am not against capitalism, but wow, what a joke. Come in and buy some souvenirs but don't waste your money on the museum.

I'm so sorry to hear that our museum didn't meet your expectations. We truly believe we have a great collection of motorcycles (almost 100 in the building), despite the size limitations of our location. If there's anything you think we might do better, we'd love to hear from you.

No mater where you come from, if you have a motorcycle you MUST go to Sturgis, South Dakota.The Black Hills Rally is the oldest and largest motorcycle rally in the United States.The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame gives you a front row perspective regarding the history and evolution on how Sturgis, S.D. became the hallmark of motorcycle enthusiasts for decades.

It is a trip of a life time! surely one of the best vacations I have had in my life time. ENJOY!

My wife and I went here because we were in Sturgis to see the town. Neither of us are cycle people and she was somewhat reluctant to go to the museum, but we both enjoyed it and spent longer than we expected. The museum houses a beautiful collection of cycles dating from very early models to the present but, even more importantly, the descriptive material about them is very good so even cycle novices like ourselves can learn a lot.
