History

This unique museum holds a large range of treasures. Named for its motorcycles that is just the beginning of what the place has to offer. Exhibition rooms hold everything from motor bicycles to model trains. The museum represents years of motor collecting covering machines from the late 1800's through to modern times.

The motorcycles are the main attractions. There are over 120 motorcycles from the turn of the last century. Most names are represented and the bikes are lined up in long rows to be viewed. The walls are lined with TT photos, motorcycle advertising over the years, and much more.

  • Visiting the Motorcycle Museum

    This is a truly impressive museum with a variety of motorised parts, machines and bikes. Displayed over many rooms it is hard to take in all that is on view. The TT (Tourist Trophy) photographs, machines, bikes, and riding gear is unlikely to be matched anywhere. Most items are marked with information signs, which can be vital when trying to identify times, make or use.

    Mike Hailwoods' 1961 TT winning Honda, might be worth a view or the outside statue of Joey Dunlop.


    Note

    CLOSED PERMANENTLY! Due to lack of demand as of Oct 2005 this museum has closed.
