Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum
The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is a unique facility that offers motorsports enthusiasts an opportunity to view an extraordinary collection of cars and motorcycles on five floors of exhibits representing a history of motorsports.
The museum currently houses over 1,300 motorcycles spanning more than 100 years of production with no fewer than 700 on display at any given time. Guests can see a variety of domestic and international motorcycles from street bikes to rare “one-off” factory-built racing motorcycles from Honda to the Augusta MV.
The museum’s impressive car collection includes the only 1964 Ferrari 158, which Englishman John Surtees drove to victory in the Grand Prix World Championship that same year. The world’s largest collection of Lotus racecars also resides here.
Established in 1988 as a private collection, the museum had outgrown its original location in downtown Birmingham by 1999. In 2003, the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum opened in its current location at the 740-acre Barber Motorsports Park just outside of Birmingham, Alabama off the I-20.
The brilliantly-landscaped park is also home to a challenging 17-turn 3.8-kilometre long road course with major elevation changes that hosts many international sports car and motorsports races each year.
