This place is treasure trove of Motorcycles and paraphernalia. Murray is a great laugh and really embraces the Manx culture. If you even slightly interested in bikes get yourself here

This museum is a must for motocycle fans. Genuinely lovely people and always sure of a warm welcome and fun time. £5 entry fee is well worth it for the museum alone but it also encludes a copy of tea and a chat. Excellent value.

Friendly warm people with a genuine enthusiasm for all things to do with motorcycles. Characterful and as it should be,not a sterile collection of toys as others seem to be. Far better priced too.

I suggest that you give Peter Murray a call on 07624 478162 but as it is T.T. week my guess is that he will be open as he has any friends calling in to see him.
