Established in 1988 as a private collection, the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum became a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization in 1994. By 1999, the Museum had outgrown its original location in downtown Birmingham. In late 2003, the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum opened in its current location at the 740-acre Barber Motorsports Park off of Interstate 20.
The Museum presently houses close to 1,200 motorcycles spanning over 100 years of production. There are over 700 bikes on display at any given time. Guests can see a variety of unique cycles representing domestic and international manufacturers. Exhibits include common street bikes, as well as rare, "one off" factory-built racing motorcycles. Our collection showcases cycles manufactured by familiar companies such as Harley-Davidson, Honda, and Indian, as well as bikes made by less familiar manufacturers Showa, DSK, and Cagiva.
BVMM also displays a unique collection of racecars. The collection includes the only 158 Ferrari from 1964. The largest collection of Lotus racecars in the world resides in the Museum right here in Birmingham, AL.
The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum strives to be an organization our community, state, and country can be proud of. With your help through donations, we can continue our mission and preserve the art and history of these machines as well as the legends of motorsports.
WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
