Wheels Through Time Museum Celebrating This Weekend Their 2014 Season With Antique Motorcycle Exhibitions And More

WTT1The Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC  – the rare and historic machines museum that everybody should visit at least one time – will be re-opening this Thursday and will welcome fans and friends until Monday for a series of exhibitions and demonstrations of many rare motorcycles, including several that were recently found on Season 1 & 2 of t”he Tv show “What’s In the Barn?”. A dozen of them belonging to America’s motorcycling beginnings .

WTT3Since the museum closed for the winter last December, staff and volunteers have been hard at work, focusing on improving visitors’ museum experience from start to finish. “For 2014, we’ve enhanced countless exhibits, expanded interpretive and informational signage, and of course, added new machines to the assortment of American motorized history on display,” said museum curator Dale Walksler. “We’ve even developed a series of smart phone applications to give visitors access to complete information about many of the machines and exhibits on display.”

WTT2The crew at WTT has also been busy shooting for season two of the Velocity TV’s new hit series “Whats In The Barn?”, which gives viewers in depth coverage of one of America’s foremost motorcycle treasure hunters in action.  Many of the new finds from season two will be on display throughout the year in the museum’s featured exhibit, along with the stories of who rode them, raced them, bought them, and sold them.  Wheels Through Time opens its doors at 9 a.m. on March 27.  Throughout the season, regular hours are 9 a.m.-5p.m., Thursday-Monday (Closed Tues & Wed). For more information, visit or call (828) 926-6266.

    One of the best motorcycle exhibits ever. WTT is a true experience of how motorcycling was years ago. As you walk threw the museum you are actually there in time. Just to meet Dale is worth the trip alone. One cool biker. ..Z

    WTT is the best motorcycle museum in the world. There is so much to see and when was the last time you heard a crocker, ace or big valve Henderson run? It is so worth the trip everyone should go there, Dale, Matt and there staff are more than happy to answer questions and share stories. Don’t forget to ask Matt for a sidecar ride.

    Visited last August – sensational – and it is something every aficionado of American motorcycles should see.

    If you haven’t been there, you need to go! Simply one of the greatest experiences any motorcycle enthusiast could have. A museum like no other, with bikes and memorabilia you will not see anywhere else in the world. Sounds like Dale has a lot of new bikes, and stuff to check out. I can hardly wait to get back there again. Congratulations Dale, Matt, and Trish on the show, and a new season!

    I ride a Yamaha FZ1, pull into WTH. Dale “Asked How do you like your Fazer”, the European name. He knows motorcycles. The museum was great, saw motorcycles I had only seen in pictures!

    WTT is the greatest collection of American motorcycles and memorabilia in existence. Dale, Matt and the rest of the crew make each visitor feel special. The Website is a wealth of info as well. I have been there twice and can’t wait to go back. This and Barbers should be on all motorcyclists bucket list!

    I have to agree with mt husband… 🙂 Dale and the gang have a great museum! One of my favorite places on earth! Go see Wheels Through Time.
    We are so lucky to have great motorcycle museums in this country. Don’t forget the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. John and Jill Parham are wonderful people and they have some awesome motorcycles and memorabilia too.

    Keep up the great job Dale! Someday…\In the meantime we will get you back on for another interview.

    I hope to see you and all the other Cannon Ballers this Summer, when you come through Tacoma, WA.

    WTT is; in my opinion, the only reason to come to Maggie Valley. For the most part it’s a biker friendly town because of WTT and the beautiful riding roads we have here. Motorcycle folks are what keeps this small valley town alive. Keep it up Wheels.
