  • More motorcycles than you can imagine, and a bunch of really nice cars and an extensive collection of Lotus cars.

  • I was in awe of this place when I walked into the door! If you love anything motorcycles, this is the place! They have 5 stories of vehicles, mostly motorcycles, but from all the motorcycle racing types and dating back into the late 1800's! I loved their race cars and especially all the vintage F1 cars! If you're in the area, definitely visit, but be prepared to spend a few hours and wear comfortable shoes. If they are running the Porsche 911's around the track while you're there, go to the fifth floor and watch them awhile. Amazing! Will definitely go again.
  • Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and track is an astonishing collection of some of the most outstanding cars and motorcycles throughout history set in a gorgeous architectural wonder. Everything is displayed beautifully, and very well organized in terms of sequence and story telling. The Lotus exhibit is one of the best museum displays in the world. The English may have the rest of the world’s history in the British Museum, but Barber has the best of English history in Alabama. This is a must see for car, history, and design lovers.
