Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, Pickerington, Ohio

On a trip to Columbus, Ohio, I was excited to discover that the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is only 20 minutes outside of downtown. The Hall of Fame features the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Gallery, Toys and Collectibles, and special exhibits.

It showcases people who are movers and shakers in the sport, motorcycle construction, or motorcycling in general. The Hall of Fame also displays motorcycles, riding gear, and memorabilia, some of them are part of the Hall of Fame’s permanent collection or are currently on loan.

The Museum is set up in a linear fashion, via a meandering path that takes you through the exhibits that are set up by theme. It’s pretty amazing to see all the history and cool innovations that have occurred over time.

My only complaint is that, overall, the exhibits are on the static side. While I love looking at motorcycles, at a certain point action and sound are needed to keep the initial excitement going.

That being said, it’s definitely worth a visit to see the Museum. The gift shop is also really cool.
