We were here about a week prior to the rally and rode in to get a glimpse of preparations. It began to rain, so we ducked in the museum. We really enjoyed the displays and exhibits. It's a worthwhile stop.

Never seen so many unique and beautiful motorcycles. From 1908 to modern custom models. The old Indians were especially nice to see. A photo bonanza. Nice to visit when it was not crowded. You enter and exit thru the little gift shop. Resistance is useless.

As stated by Barry, $10 to $12 range. And yes, we got a buck off for being old folks! It's totally worth it as the museum is supported by the fees and donations.

The bike you are asking about is an Excelsior Henderson Super X. There were under 2000 of them manufactured in Belle Plaine, Minnesota. We're so glad you enjoyed our museum. Please let me know if you have other questions.
