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.

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.

Classic cars, classic bikes, this is the place. Biggest collection I have ever seen. Dale (the owner and curator) came up to several bikes we were looking at and asked if we would like to hear them run. No sooner than we said absolutely, he was on them and firing them up. Amazing. Hands on, up close and personal. Make... More
