The National Motorcycle Museum at Solihul is recognised as the finest and largest motorcycle museum in the world.
 
On display is an amazing collection of Ariel, BSA, Triumph, Norton, AJS and many others. This was the time when British motorcycles ‘Ruled the World’. Motor cycle enthusiasts will find their favourite British machine in this wonderful museum together with interesting notes and history.
 
Although the museum was extensively damaged by fire in 2003 when two thirds of its extensive collection of 900 machines and three of the five exhibition halls were destroyed, the Museum is now back better than before. After a determined £20M reconstruction effort, the Museum reopened in 2004 with the theme ‘Where Legends Live On’.
 
For those interested in all things 'transport' there is also the Coventry Transport Museum nearby in central Coventry.
