A walk through nostalgia, history, collectable Cars and Motorcycles, even some bicycles if I remember right. The best part of walking through this place is that you'll urethane likely get to meet the owner. The rest of the staff here are encyclopedias of knowledge, wit, and full of stories that can keep you entertained for hours. Well worth the price... More

Drove an hour and a half only to find it closed for the season. Checked the website first so nothing posted about it being closed. Thank goodness the drive was pretty.

If you have any interest in motorcycles at all, Wheels Through Time needs to be on your "must do" list. Curator Dale Walksler and his son Matt are very welcoming, as are the rest of the courteous staff, and ultra knowledgeable. It's called "The Museum That Runs" for good reason. Nearly all of the motorcycles and cars on display (hundreds)... More

Myself and a friend while on a motorcycle camping trip spend made a side trip to Maggie Valley to visit the Wheels Through Time museum. I really don't have the words to describe just how great the place is for anyone interested in early motorcycles. There are a few early autos and mc related machinery also but the place is... More

While on Thanksgiving vacation with the family in Maggie Valley we stopped by the Wheels through time museum and it was completely mind blowing. Dale was at the entrance when we arrived and was super friendly and let the kids in for free since we took the time to stop in on our vacation. The entire staff there were excellent... More

A real historical treasure. Dale provides a fantastic look at the evolution of transportation by two and three wheels with some unique cars thrown in. Take your time and enjoy your visit. This place is a real treat and new surprises are found all over the building.

If you are staying in Maggie Valley this is a great place to spend a day. Dale is like a kid in a candy store, he is always somewhere in the museum explaining the intracacies of some bike or car to someone or driving one of his vintage machines through the place. The amount of old motorcycles and cars is... More

This is the best motorcycle museum I have seen so far, even better than Milwaukee. Amazing pieces and a lot of history. You will need at least 2-3 hours to see it all.

The history is something to experience and the trip was well worth it. Take along a camera, photo ops all throughout the building.
