AMA Hall of Fame
The motorcycle hall of fame and museum is located in Pickerington. The museum features numerous motorcycles, information about famous riders and has a collection of memorabilia and outfits worn by riders. In the lower level, an area with some of Honda's motorcycles, including one made in Marysville and the custom "Valkyrie" bike are on display. I did not realize that Honda got its start with motorcycles as its founder, Soichiro Honda, was a motorcycle racing enthusiast and engineer. Visitors learn about the history of the motorcycle and some of the early pioneers. I thought it was neat to see a photo of the Harley-Davidson founders and some of the earliest motorcycles. The outfits worn by riders was also interesting.
The museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. It is closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
The museum is located at 13515 Yarmouth Drive in Pickerington.
Admission is as follows:
