Travel Tips for Birmingham

Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum

by grandmaR

As we drove towards Birmingham on I-20, I saw that we were approaching the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. That hadn't been in my plans at all, but since the railroad museum was closed at this time of year, we stopped.

This turned out to be a fantastic museum which mostly concentrated on motorcycles, although they did have some race cars and a powder blue 1958 Chevrolet plus some ship and car models.

George Barber (whose museum this is) raced, modified, and maintained Porsches in the 1960's. His interest soon turned to motorcycles.

"He wanted to preserve motorcycle history in the United States in a way that represents an international aspect and to supply an example of motorcycles that until then could only have been seen in books and magazines."

There are 750 vintage and modern motorcycles displayed on walls, two-tiered platforms and just about everywhere you look. The bikes are displayed randomly, rather than by date and year,

Restorations are done in-house. The original museum opened in March 14, 1995. It moved to the new location at The Barber Motorsports Park on September 19, 2003.

"The collection now has over 900 vintage and modern motorcycles... There are approximately five hundred motorcycles on display at any given time. (There are over 900 in the collection.) These bikes range from 1904 to current-year production. There are bikes from 16 countries that represent 143 different marques. "

There is also a race track associated with the museum. We arrived at 11:30 and were there for a hour.

I am a native Birminghamian and one day wish to relocate in the city they call the "magic city" It is a lovely place. Currently I reside in Cincinnati,Ohio and I am involved with a local networking organization named Job Search Focus Group www.jsfg.com as the administrative officer, perhaps one-day I'll fet my act together and venture to Birmingham the place I still consider home.
