Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall Of Fame


Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall Of Fame

Sturgis is synonymous with motorcycles and the people who love them. Visitors come all year looking for motorcycle-related businesses and attractions - and they get a piece of motorcycling history when they visit Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.

The mission of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of motorcycling, honor those who have made a positive and significant impact on the sport and lifestyle, and pay tribute to the heritage of the Sturgis Rally.

The Museum is open year round, seven days a week. Summer months are the busiest as people flock to the famous motorcycle mecca, culminating in August during the famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Motorcycles and exhibits are changed on a regular basis offering repeat visitors something fresh and new each time they stop in.

Our vision is to continue as a world-class museum offering comprehensive and educational exhibits and showcasing rare and unusual motorcycles significant to our history and our sport. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame will stand out among other motorcycle museums, in that we will not only document the history of the machines, we will document the history of the people who have shaped and changed the sport and lifestyle. This will be a resource and inspiration for future generations.
