Museum Hours

Update 3/19/2020: Tomorrow, March 20, following recommendations from the CDC, Jefferson County Officials and the City of Birmingham Officials, the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum will temporarily close to the public until April 4th or the COVID-19 risk diminishes, this includes our programs and events through April 4th. We believe this closure is the best way to protect our staff, patrons, and volunteers, while also supporting public health officials in their efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. BVMM Staff wish to thank you for your understanding and hope you all remain free of the virus and visit once we reopen. Please follow us on Facebook or check our website for updates on this closure.

Where else in the world can you see 900+ mint-condition motorcycles on exhibit at one time? Nowhere.
