Where are we going today?

Vroom Vroom - rev those engines, it's time to explore the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum - a place for that family day out that is dedicated to those amazing motorcycles and vintage vehicles of the past. 

Did you know that the museum has over 1300 modern motorcycles, as well as a ton of incredible vintage race cars and motorcycles. If you LOVE all things engines, and cars, and motors, then this is for you!

This collection is the largest of it's kind in the entire world, AND it also has an amazing collection of Lotus cars. Don't know what they are? Then head on down to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum to find out!

The museum have on display at any given time about 600 of the 1200 motorcycles, which means they keep rotating them. Which means...that's right - that there will always be something NEW to see whenever you go back!

Did you know that bikes were around as far back as 1902? That's over 100 years! The museum have some of these very old bikes in their collection - right up to street bikes of today. Kids - how do you think they have all changed over the years?

They're not just USA bikes either. They have come from ALL over the world - from Australia, New Zealand, and even Sweden! So it gives kids a chance to really see how they have not only changed across the years, but how the different models change.

Start those engines, because it’s time to get all motorcycled out at this fascinating museum great for that family day out!

    I just moved to Alabama from New York and I work at the Hampton Inn right across the street from the museum. Both colleagues, and guests have raved to me about the museum so I HAD to check it out. Mind you, I'm not a motorcycle enthusiast, however I've always been one to give credit where it's due. This museum is really cool. it's amazing that 99% of the motorcycles actually still run too. They have a model T car (The first car ever made) and a bunch of other cars to get up close to (without touching of course). I will definitely return, and recommend...Read More

    I went by the park today and I wanted to do a fly over and take a video of the whole field with my Phantom 2 Quad copter to post on my Google+ page and my Facebook page. I waited for about 10 minutes which undoubtedly they were discussing the options behind closed doors. Finally a young fellow came out a greeted me and stated that it was policy that no one could fly over the property with any type of remote controlled device. This was in the dead of day with nothing happening other than the Museum being open.
    So it brings me to wonder what are they...Read More

    What a wonderful museum! My wife and I spent all day there, and we STILL could spend more time just taking it all in. Everything is spacious and well laid out, the staff was pleasant and helpful, and the layout is designed to pull you through the museum in a very natural fashion. Some of the bikes there (like the Vincent Black Shadow) made me weak in the knees! Suffice it to say, I need to come back.

    Even if you are not into motorsports the museum is very well planned and the displays are great. If you are not a motorcycle nut like me I am sure you will appreciate the art and design (plus the colors) put into so many unique motorcycles and cars. I would have given 5 stars if we could go to the basement. You can look from the top but there was no way to get there... :(

So it brings me to wonder what are they hiding that they wont allow the public to see. Otherwise, I can't think of any reason why they would not want it because of the free publicity that it would bring. Hmmm, I wonder ....
