Don't miss a visit to the Isle of Man Motor Museum

The Isle of Man Motor Museum located in Jurby in the north of the island is home
to over 500 vehicles spanning more than a century of motoring.

With over 330 motorcycles and scooters on display over two mezzanine levels, there is something for every taste. We tell the history of the motorcycle on our wall of bikes from early British machines of the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s to Japanese road and sports bikes of the 1960s and 70s through to modern sports bikes of the 1980s, 90s and 00s, culminating with a 2019 CCM Spitfire. Off-road motorcycles (including bikes ridden by former multiple World Enduro Champion David Knight MBE) sit alongside TT and MGP machinery from Joey Dunlop, John McGuinness, Steve Hislop, Richard ‘Milky’ Quayle and Conor Cummins alongside racing sidecars and hundreds of items of TT and MGP memorabilia including helmets, leathers, trophies, corner and mile marker signs and a marshal’s hut.


New for 2024 is a display from the legendary motorcycle stunt troupe The Purple Helmets - come and see the long bike, the rollover bike and the piano bike and the stories behind them from over 25 years of entertaining the crowds at the TT.

Read the story of the islands connection with the Bonneville Speed Week and see some of the record breaking machines built on the island.
Learn about the history of Peel Engineering, the island’s only manufacturer of cars including the legendary Peel P50 (the world’s smallest car). Peel also manufactured motorcycle fairings. Learn how there is a connection between Peel and the iconic Mini.

The motorcycles sit alongside over 200 other vehicles including rare prototypes, royal cars, professional cars, buses, modern classics and military vehicles; there’s even a space station in the compound.

The Museum is an all-weather venue, a great place to shelter on a wet day and the perfect place to take some shade on a hot day.
