“Well worth the nominal fee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was my first time at the museum. This is a hidden gem that is a must see for any motorcycle enthusiast. Covering years of motorcycle history, there is a little something for everyone. It was interesting to see the number of motorcycles either on loan or donated to the museum. I even saw a motorcycle that was featured on American Pickers that is on loan there. Throw in a few boat motors manufactured by motorcycle manufacturers and you have a great opportunity to see history.

If you love motorcycles and their history this is a must see, clean and organized, plan on a few hours to take it all in.

Absolutely terrific museum. The organization of the motorcycles and memorabilia was superb!! The personnel could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Benches scattered throughout for when you needed to sit - like me!!

“Lots of motorcycles....seems....disorganized a bit?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Our little group of four were really looking forward to seeing the museum. While a great mecca of motorcycles to view, the organization of them seemed a bit disheveled and kind of thrown together. I could really detect no rhyme or reason to the layout....and consequently, found that I just kind of breezed by the motorcycles admiring certain ones and enjoying the special spread on Evil Knievel. There were some unique bikes there and even the two motorcycles that I learned to ride upon. I think with more of a semblance of a time line of the bikes, or some more logical layout, this could even be a better representation of motorcycling history.

“Over 400 motorcycles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This museum use to be in Sturigs but when the new owner took over he moved it to Anamosa where he lives. The museum is right off the highway and is $8 per person. You pay and enter through the gift shop. There are over 400 bikes ranging from the early 1900s all the way up to modern times. Some bikes have been restored while others still sport their original paint. There are all kinds of bikes and the place does a great job giving the history as well as specs on them. We spent an hour and a half here and had a great time. If you find yourself in the area this museum is well worth a morning or afternoon.
