A consummate collection of over 250 rare antique American Motorcycles and Automobiles. Equally as astounding is the memorabilia collection that unites the "art of the motorcycle" with the generation of Americans that enjoyed a lifestyle peculiar to the "American Mainstream."
The thrust of the museum is to educate future generations to a fascinating spectrum of Americana.
From the early years 1900 – 1928, motorcycles emerged from a motor powered bicycle to a form of reliable sport and transportation.
Through these years, commercial, police and military motorcycle sales were important also. The Wheels Through Time collection contains over 30 pre 16 models. All of which are in running order. Possibly the most interesting Pre 16 is Oscar Hedstroms (Indian Founder) unique prototype. The Wheels Through Time Museum is also known as the "Museum That Runs." Most of these machines are driven regularly!
A collection of military models are also displayed in a timeline of galleries that lead us to today's motorcycle.
The Wheels Through Time’s Opening Exhibit "Men and their Machines", a world exclusive exhibit; will feature one of a kind, and special prototype models. An Evil Knieval jump bike, prototype Harley’s and Indian’s, a fascinating racing Henderson motorcycle and a "Dream Bike" created by an elusive Mr. Traub, highlight the 22-bike exhibit.
Maggie Valley is the perfect location for this great collection. Located in western North Carolina, Maggie Valley is a quiet community nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains with close proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and a host of Smoky Mountain attractions.
