The range and quality of bikes was mind boggling. All in excellent condition. Some with more intriguing features than others. The host of the museum was friendly and knowledgeable. Perfect place for a Motorcycle buff to hang out for a while. Big thumbs up here....More

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.

Great selection of rare bikes and bits and pieces. Apparently more to come in the future as they are restored. Enjoyed it and well worth having a look if your bike inclined.. like myself.

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.
