For a small entry fee you can view an amazingly beautiful collection of motorbikes. John was very friendly and extremely knowledgable on all things motorcycle!

Awesome collection of new & classic bikes, Noel was friendly, dedicated & certainly knew his bikes. We got a personal tour with Noel sharing some interesting stories about the collection, brought back memories of my childhood.
There is a brand new electric Harley & the "Blood Orange" coloured Harley seen in the forefront of the picture deserves a closer look, souvenir shop is well stocked with shirts, memorabilia & patches to add to your jackets.

We are so pleased you were able to revisit some of your fond childhood memories when looking at the collection (trust us this does happen a lot!). Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with other visitors to Tamworth - we appreciate it!

Great collection and Noel was super friendly and had a good yarn with us explaining some of the history about the motorcycles.
Price for entry was cheap and would recommend as a must see item in Tamworth.

As a lover of all things motorcycle, it was a pleasant escape from a rainy afternoon on our way through Tamworth to spend some time with Noel who was on duty. A varied collection of desirable machines over the eras on display, some of which I owned, once...
About 57 bikes to view.

Great place to visit, even if you are only mildly interested in Motorcycles. The attendant Bill will happily show you around and tell you a story about every bike. The highlight is the hand built replica of Gottlieb Daimlers first ever motorcycle. Which Daimler called Reitwagen (the riding wagon).

It is great to welcome a true lover of motorcycles to the Museum & we're glad you enjoyed the Reitwagen (thanks for sharing this info!). We also appreciate your warm feedback about Bill & his contribution to your experience - he truly has a great knowledge of bikes & loves a story or three!

Popped in for a visit, the person running the museum was very lovely and explained how to navigate the room. Clean, air-conditioned, and a bit of info next to each bike which was interesting to read. Also was out of the heat / rain, so that's a bonus!

Rated 4/5 ("very good") because it was exactly what I expected it to be - a pleasant way to spend 30 minutes, and a bit different to what I would normally do.

I'm not a motorbike enthusiast, but with only a few museums in town, I thought it would be interesting to check out, and I had time. The staff member told me all items on display were owned by a private collector, and them told me a bit about the bikes themselves & asked if I had any questions, he was quite enthusiastic about the bikes. It's just one medium sized room & you can see it all from the entrance, but everything is in immaculate condition with a few antique bikes added as well.
