Whilst not a huge collection they are in great condition and the enthusiast enhoying reliving some of his historical rides. The volunteer on duty was full of tips and information. The non enthusiast had a comfortable seat to wait it out.

Stopped in to the museum as I was staying in Tamworth close by, the price of entry includes a hot drink. If you are in to your bikes, then you will really appreciate this place. A great collection. My kids loved it too.

The price of entry allows you to see someone's private collection that has been made public. Not the best range but then the price for entry is cheap. A couple of machines would be most welcome in my shed.
