National Motorcycle Museum in Iowa Offers Incredible Journey Through History of Motorcycling

You'll be blown away by the vast number of motorcycles, displays, posters, art, rider exhibits and the vast history of motorcycling culture on display at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. This town is just a blip on the map. But if you're ever in Eastern Iowa, make it a point to visit. You'll be glad you did.

As they explain on their website:

"The National Motorcycle Museum was founded in 1989 by people who love motorcycling and it thrives today because of their sound plan. Engineers, racers, bike builders, tuners and others as far back as the late 1800′s built the groundwork for what motorcycling has become. The National Motorcycle Museum’s goal is to present their passion, and ours, through fine interpretive exhibitions built around a fine collection of machines and historical objects from around the world."

Bill Barber, director of the museum, says most bikers are usually stunned by the broad sweep of motorcycle culture on display here.

"People are usually surprised by the vastness and the size of our collection," he said. "It's not just Harley's. It's anything that has to do with motorcycles, anything that has two wheels."

Donation to view the hundreds of motorcycles and unique historical biking exhibits is only $10 per person (the museum is a non-profit, so they can use every bit of financial support you can give them.) Bring your camera and take home some memories. We've included some of images we managed to capture during our tour of the museum, thanks to their friendly staff. In our opinion, the National Motorcycle Museum is a highly recommended destination you need to add to your bucket list if you've never been here!
