Information

Australia's largest collection of vintage, veteran, and classic motorcycles. Around 800 Motorcycles on Display.

The National Motorcycle Museum was initially located in Mitchell, a suburb of Canberra, in 1990. It was started by Brian and Margaret Kelleher, who at this time had been in the motorcycle retail industry for 18 years. Brian had been collecting motorcycles before starting the motorcycle business and they continued storing motorcycles and memorabilia with the dream of one day opening a museum. Motorcycles formed a very important part of Australia's transport history, as they provided a cheap method of motor transport. In the 1950s and 60s many Australians' first motor vehicle was a motorcycle.

When the Kellehers read in a Bureau of Statistics report in 1988 that substantial numbers of our old motorcycles were leaving the country for the USA, Japan and England, they believed that unless something was done promptly much of Australia's motorcycling heritage would be lost. This was the trigger to start the museum for their collection and to offer a home to some of the motorcycles sitting in peoples' sheds.
