“Awesome place for Motorbike Lovers”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Best place for bike lovers, this museum has wide collection of antique motorcycle. Best part which I like the most is the American Racer where American competition machines like “Chopper City,” and displays focusing on military and police motorcycles, and my favorite harley davidson motorcycles.

Reviewed June 12, 2012

Unusual and rare early machines in good original order. Not only Indians on display. Affordable.

“Fascinating & fun - 100+ years of Motorcycles - Can't say enough good things about it”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

A great experience for both motorcycle enthusiasts and those with just a passing interest, the Motorcyclepedia Museum has all things bike related, from early model bikes (1890's !), contemporary custom choppers, to replicas of the bikes from Easy Rider, and a full scale 'Wall of Death' exhibit (look it up if you don't know what it is...). If you missed the Guggenheim's 'Art of the Motorcycle' traveling exhibit a few years ago, this is a great permanent collection that showcases the beauty of bikes, their contribution to innovative engineering, and their enduring presence in American culture.
Be prepared to spend at least 3 hours, as there is so much to see.

“Fun, interesting, unique”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the Trip Advisor reviews caught my attention. Even though I'm not a motorcycle buff, I enjoyed this museum a lot. They have some great novelty bikes, and it was interesting to see the evolution from bicycle to motorized vehicle. Certainly a unique museum!

“Surprising & fun”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

A visit to a motorcycle museum is not something I would ever contemplate on my own, but in the interest of family togetherness I agreed to go with my husband. Anything with an engine brings a vision of grease, grime, and yawning in boredom to my mind; the experience was quite the opposite in a wonderful way.

Motorcyclepedia is housed in what looks like a former Miron's Home Improvement store (didn't look so promising from the outside). Walk in the door and it's a whole other picture. The exhibits are skillfully curated, interesting and informative. My favorites were the Indian room & the section on motorcycles in movies.

It's kind of amazing to find this in Newburgh.... highly recommended.
