Overview

Open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 12noon to 5pm. Our museum is the only museum in the country which chronicles the history of the motorcycle policeman. There are 94 motorcycles on display from 1909 to 2005, a movie theater, a workshop where we build a bike a year, a special Laconia Race exhibit with racers from 1909 to the present,our lobby is dedicated to our military with original WW11 motors and much more. Our pride and joy is our junior motor officer area where children receive a badge and police ID card if they take a pledge to read every night, obey their parents, promise not to bully, and say no to drugs.

It's comments like yours that keep us going. The early history of motorcycling centered around the courageous acts of police and military with race competition drawing millions of civilians into the hobby. Thank you very much for your kind review.
