Despite having little interest in motorcycles in general, I found this to be a fabulous museum. 500 motorcycles, most of which were collected and donated by one man, of tremendous historical value. The museum is huge, and the collection is organized well. In addition to cycles of all sizes, colors, ages, conditions (many beautifully restored and many in original condition),... More

Wonderful collection of motorcycles. Really enjoyed the Indian motorcycle display with each year of the motorcycle from the very beginning. Some very unusual bikes on display as well. The Indian Larry and the Wall of Death exhibits were impressive as well. This was a must see stop for us on our way north and it was only a 2 hour... More

An excellent... More

We thought we would be there for a couple of hours, we stayed 4 1/2 hours. The Indian display with every year on display was impressive. The information on the history of the Indian motorcycle was extensive. The Harley display was good, however not as informative or as extensive, room for improvement.

I saw this museum on a roadside attractions map when planning a trip driving from Pittsburgh to Maine and thought it would be a nice stop to get out and walk around a bit. It's a few miles off the highway and we actually thought we were lost since it's back behind a housing project. There is tons of parking... More

I was impressed. The amount of motorcycles on display was more than I expected. Harleys, Indians, Excellsior Hendersons, Aces, dirt bikes, racing bikes, touring bikes, custom bikes. And the history! They even had motodromes inside. I liked the fact that they had people walking around ready to answer any questions and to give you more details and back stories. 2... More

This museum is a must see for the motorcycle enthusiast or motorized vehicle history buff. The museum staff is very knowledgable and we even got to meet the founders family. The visit was very enjoyable.
