During the latter part of 2016, the five display halls of the National Motorcycle Museum were completely changed to improve the visitor experience and interpretation of the collection.
The museum houses the biggest collection of British motorcycles in the world, with more than 1000 machines from 170 different manufacturers spanning three centuries.
Around 850 of these machines are on display at any one time, and now that the mammoth move-around has been completed, visitors both old and new are invited to take a look at this amazing inventory.
The museum foyer contains a large number of motorcycles, including the museum’s collection of sidecar outfits, Velocette road machines and temporary displays including a Wallace & Gromit sidecar.
The Hall 1 exhibition, entitled ‘60 Glorious Years’, was the idea of museum founder Mr William (Roy) Richards and showcases, in year order, the six wonderful decades of motorcycle manufacturing in Britain from 1898 to 1960.
