We happened to see a brochure while staying at a B&B in Fordingbridge and thought we would check it out. It may look small and unasuming from the outside but if you like motorcycles them this place is a must see, over 350 bikes all in excellent condition and many you won't find anywhere else. Well worth the entry fee and also grab one of the coloured brochures for a small cost. Thank you Mr Miller

What a fabulous place to take the boys on a rainy day!
We loved it.
We were considering a pricy trip to Beaulieu but decided against it.
We are so glad we visited this lovely little museum.
It was well worth the £6 entry fee!

Well known amongst motorcycling people world wide and no wonder after a visit. While not the easiest to find ie down a country lane on a farm it's worth the hassle but GPS will pinpoint it for you. Plan to spend the whole day as there is so much to see and Sammy mayeven be there himself and if so will spend a few minutes with you. The staff are helpful,knowledgeable and friendly. The display is well presented , labelled and covers most of the motorcycle timeline. Some models are so unique to be the only one in existence while other classics maybe common it's great to see them in the flesh. Food is available along with a shop. Ample parking and at some times special days are held. I know I hope to get back again as it is a must see.

What an impressive man and motorcycle collection. Well set out and more varied than we were expecting. There was a quiz to keep the kids engaged and the staff very friendly. The adjoining cafe had excellent home made soup, which was very welcome on a bitterly cold day.

Definitely one for the lads. Quite impressed with the variety of bikes on display for a private collection. Good collection of old petrol pumps and tractors outside. Once we girls had had enough, we went round the craft shops and waited for the lads in the tea rooms. Lovely cream teas.
