Welcome To The Sammy Miller Museum
Update 2nd May 2021:
We are pleased to announce that the Motorcycle Museum will re-open on Monday 17th May 2021 - we are very much looking forward to welcoming you here.
We are confident that the Motorcycle Museum is COVID secure for our visitors and staff with social distancing and strict cleaning procedures in place.
There is no need to pre book admission to visit the Museum.
Please Do Not Feed The Goats or Alpacas. All our animals are suitably fed daily and too much food is making them unwell as they are unable to digest some of the food which is fed to them during the day. Our donkeys can be fed small pieces of carrot or apple. Thank you for helping us look after the health of our animals.
The Museum Trust is pleased to annouce that as a registered We’re Good to Go business, we are eligible for the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) “Safe Travels” stamp. This enables travellers to recognise destinations around the world that have adopted global standardised protocols so they can experience ‘Safe Travels.’
Sammy Miller is a motorcycling legend, 11 times British Champion, winner of over 1400 events and still winning competitions more than 50 years after his first victory. The Museum houses one of the finest collections of fully restored motorcycles in the world, including factory racers and exotic prototypes, with the collection constantly evolving as new bikes are acquired. This is a living museum with almost every motorcycle in the museum in full running order. Sammy demonstrates and parades the bikes at race circuits in the UK and at Museum event days.
In November 2014 Sammy was presented with the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme) Legend Award in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain and in October 2016 Sammy was for the second time awarded Motor Cycle News’s David Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award. Perhaps all the more significant was that this award was accorded to Sammy by the younger generation of journalists at MCN who are not always aware of Sammy’s momentous achievements over the years!
In 2014 Sammy wanted an area which would enhance the Museum allowing him to display even more motorcycles and motorcycling memorabilia. Completed in January 2015 and officially opened in March 2015 by John Surtees OBE and Murray Walker OBE, the two story glass fronted extension has certainly given the Museum Complex the entrance it deserves!
We are looking forward to welcoming our visitors to our new 10,000 sq ft extension. This two storey extension has enabled Sammy to display more bikes and motorcycle related memorabilia but unfortunately two days after opening in 2020 we had to close due to lockdown restrictions. We are certain our visitors will be very impressed!
