This is a fabulous place to spend time. A wonderful nostalgic walk around. You would have to go several times and still you will see something you missed the last time. Excellent place and would highly recommend!

This is a absolutely must see if you have any interest in motorcycle history. Mostly American,British and all older bikes. Very interesting. Most all the bikes will start and run. You can spend a day easily! Staff were great!

Americana at its finest. Felt like someone finally found a good use for all the "stuff" in my grandpa's garage. Cool tidbits of American industrial history. More Harleys than you can imagine. Favorite section was military corner and wall of women on motorcycles.

We took a big detour to visit this great attraction. If you have an interest in bikes, then you can't miss it! Coming from the UK we don't have this calibre of amazing old vehicles and it was so interesting. Well worth a visit!

Others have answered this correctly but go to their website. If your into motorcycles particularly old ones allow a minimum of an hour. Some of the hosts stories are very interesting in and of themselves.
