THE MISSION

Preserving our nation’s motorcycle history has never been so important!

What would become Wheels Through Time Museum started in a dirt floor garage in Glenn Elyn, Illinois, when Dale Walksler restored his first motorcycle. Flash forward 52 years and
Wheels Through Time has become a benchmark in American Motorcycle preservation since its founding in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, in 2002.

Now in its twentieth year, the Museum is growing faster than ever imagined, and now we need your help!

Our dream has been to preserve the most important parts of American motorcycle history and culture and share them with our visitors from around the world. With a view to the future, we look to expand the current facility to continue to enhance the visitor experience. In order to do so, we must retrofit our existing facility with a fire suppression system.

The cost of this system is estimated at $300,000, and we’re asking YOU to help join the cause.

Our Visitors Are Like Family

“Like Cars? Like Motorcycles? Then you'll Love this Place!”

A walk through nostalgia, history, collectable Cars and Motorcycles, even some bicycles if I remember right. The best part of walking through this place is that you’ll urethane likely get to meet the owner. The rest of the staff here are encyclopedias of knowledge, wit, and full of stories that can keep you entertained for hours. Well worth the price of admission and a place not to be missed if you are ever in this part of NC.

“Wheels Through Time Rocks!”

If you have any interest in motorcycles at all, Wheels Through Time needs to be on your “must do” list. Curator Dale Walksler and his son Matt are very welcoming, as are the rest of the courteous staff, and ultra knowledgeable. It’s called “The Museum That Runs” for good reason. Nearly all of the motorcycles and cars on display (hundreds) are operational and every time I’ve been there, something gets started up. There are bikes here that you will see nowhere else. Some are one-of-one beauties. I have been there at least 10 times and am planning my next trip now. Check their dates; they close in the winter.

“An amazing part of our Family Vacation”

While on Thanksgiving vacation with the family in Maggie Valley we stopped by the Wheels through time museum and it was completely mind blowing. Dale was at the entrance when we arrived and was super friendly and let the kids in for free since we took the time to stop in on our vacation. The entire staff there were excellent and the contents of the place is 2nd to none. It is an unbelievable collection of historic motorcycles and other machines that has to be experienced, i recommend you go there with plenty of time.

“A Must See”

If you are staying in Maggie Valley this is a great place to spend a day. Dale is like a kid in a candy store, he is always somewhere in the museum explaining the intracacies of some bike or car to someone or driving one of his vintage machines through the place. The amount of old motorcycles and cars is amazing, there is so much to see you can’t take it all in. A fun time and a great look at the history of the motor world.

“If you have a love for classics, this place is a must see!”

Classic cars, classic bikes, this is the place. Biggest collection I have ever seen. Dale (the owner and curator) came up to several bikes we were looking at and asked if we would like to hear them run. No sooner than we said absolutely, he was on them and firing them up. Amazing. Hands on, up close and personal. Make sure you allow your self a few hours to spend time so you don’t miss anything in this fabulous collection.
