A motorcyclist's dream, this museum has 750 vintage and modern motorcycles displayed on walls, two-tiered platforms and just about everywhere you look. The bikes are displayed randomly, rather than by date and year, adding an element of unpredictability to the viewer's experience.

This is a most unusual museum, filled with 100's of antique and new motorcycles. Motorcycles are not my "thing" but this is such a beautiful and unique place. The design of the building is fabulous. It is something that most everyone would enjoy seeing just for the pleasure of seeing the building, the surroundings and one man's passion for motorcycle.

It is amazing car collection place. I was taken there by business partner. But to me, with no knowledge about car, I just looked at short history note of each car displayed in front of each car and did the quiz. Must go place for car lovers though.

Hard to describe the sheer volume of motorcycles, cars and vintage automobilia housed in this WORLD CLASS museum. Truly staggering. Hard to take it all in. Carve out a couple hours at least in order to really enjoy and appreciate this facility.

This is the most beautiful park in Birmingham! I recommend that you also visit the Museum because it has every type of motorcycle that has ever been created. There are vintage motorcycles as well as vintage cars. The property itself is amazing and the people are great too!!

If you like motorcycles of all kinds this is your place. Museum staff friendly and knowledgeable and eager to share. Price was very reasonable and 4 floors packed full of some of the sweetest bikes you'll ever see in one building!

I am a die hard race fan so of course I was at the track to watch the Indycar race. First impression driving in is someone has built a park (flowers, shrubs, manicured lawns) and put a race track in the middle. And then throw in a world class museum, wow! For a motorcycle enthusiast there is none better in... More

Amazing experience for all. even if you're not very interested in motorcycles, this is still a fascinating place to see the evolution of motorcycles. there are thousands of motorcycles on display from all different manufacturers and countries. there are some cars, but mostly this museum is devoted to motorcycles. there is an actual race track next to the museum, and...

I had no option really but to accompany my husband to the this motorcycle museum, and even thought I could care less about motors and cars, I must say I was impressed by the design of the museum, how well thought out and exposed everything was, the service, and the details. This is a man's dream!

I was fortunate to be taken to the museum as part of a corporate group and was only there for 3 hours. I could have stayed 3 days! If you are a motorcycle fan there is simply nowhere better. The range of machinery on display was awe inspiring and I understand that only about half the collection is on display... More
