Welcome To The Sammy Miller Museum
The Museum Trust welcomes visitors and motorcyclists and would like to assure everyone that we have followed the Government and HSE’s ‘5 Point Plan’ and undertake a strict cleaning procedures.
UPDATE 13 09 2020:
Further to the Government's new regulations on social distancing we have sadly had to cancel our Ride In events. The Museum Trust will make an official anouncement on Tuesday 15th September.
Travel Update: When travelling to the Museum from the East, save yourself time by avoiding Lyndhurst and drive through Burley.
Further to the Prime Minister, VisitBritain/VisitEngland and Go New Forest recent announcement, the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum will fully comply with the rulings regarding the wearing of face coverings. We politely request that all visitors entering the Motorcycle Museum wear face coverings whilst inside the building. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, please provide proof when paying your admission. Thank you.
This became law on 8 August and the Home Secretary continues to work with the police to ensure that attractions not following the guidelines can be closed.
Payment - Please Note: The Museum Trust have taken the decision that in order to help reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus the Motorcycle Museum have now ceased taking cash in payment for admission or goods purchased. We are happy to accept payment by credit or debit cards when paying your admission or purchasing goods in the shop.
To help with social distancing we have a one-way system in operation throughout the Museum. Please note we allow bottles of water in the Motorcycle Museum but no food in the Museum.
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!
