The National Motorcycle Museums award winning facilities provides a truly unique venue for your conference, seminar, banquet or function. Breathtaking displays of literally hundreds of fully restored British motorcycles are on hand to provide an extra attraction to your delegates. We aim to offer more than a unique venue, however. We know that the success of any function is dependent upon the backing and support of an experienced and caring staff. 13 luxuriously appointed and newly renovated suites, ranging from just 5 to up to 1000 delegates offer the flexibility to suite most requirements. The National Motorcycle Museum is at the hub of the country’s motorway system and rail network, with Birmingham International railway station just five-minutes taxi ride away. Access from everywhere within the UK is direct and overseas visitors praise the excellent international services provided at Birmingham Airport, which is less than two miles in distance away. The National Exhibition Centre is also near the Museum complex and we offer vast car parking facilities.Many of our clients are ‘blue-chip’ companies from home and overseas. They come back to us time after time – we know you will too, and look forward to seeing you to discuss your requirements in the near future.

If you get the chance then definitely visit this little gem of a museum. We were in awe of the bikes they have got on display, all well presented, well kept and with a vast amount of information on each and everyone. Even discovered some makes and manufactures I didn't know had existed.The restaurant also does a mean breakfast which... More

This was a return visit, the last time was just before the terrible fire. It's bigger and even better now. So much history in one place. Any bike you ever owned or lusted after is represented there. So much to take in, a return visit in the near future is required. I know you won't be disappointed.

The bikes and displays are fantastic and not to be missed. The lady working on the Motolegends reception is very rude; constantly barking at people to not eat their own food. Shop is also very overpriced.

If you want to see the best in motorcycle history then this is the only place to visit. The completeness of the collection is outstanding and with every British marque on show it's a must for the enthusiast and the expert . Right from the Rolls Royce of motorcycling history that is Brough Superior to the diminutive two strokes and... More

Good venue, plenty of parking, comfortable chairs and spacious rooms. Ideal conference venue.The food was very tasty , despite catering for large numbers. Attended a dinner dance in the evening and again, lovely meal.

The NMM is absolutely stunning. Around 800 bikes in pristine condition. Many have oil pans underneath them, so I presume they are ready to go. Old British motorcycles don't leak oil, the are simply marking their territory😃 Photography is not easy though as the bikes are packed in tight and the white ropes keep on sneaking into pictures. But I... More

With around 820 Motorbikes all of UK Manufacture this is a must visit for anyone interested in this type of transport. It took us around 3 hours to get around the 5 halls. We did not visit the restaurant (it closes at 2.30) but we had a tea at the Drinks Kart in the foyer area and the staff were... More

Fantastic day out. Not sure if it's for all the family though. I spent at least 3 hours looking around,mainly looking for the bikes my dad owned. Spent many an hour playing on them as a child. This museum brings back a lot of memories.

Where best to situate the National Motorcycle Museum other than the birthplace of worldwide manufacturing, Birmingham! A brilliant selection of Britain's finest machines, long forgotten marques and relatively unknown specials. I could spend days there, It is also a good place to research your rebuild if you are into that sort of thing. Our racing and record breaking heritage is... More
