Wheels Through Time Museum

Since the early years of the 20th century, the mountains and foothills of Western North Carolina have become a popular tourist destination primarily because of the easier access provided by motorized vehicles.  Indeed, increasing tourism to this formerly remote region was the rationale for building the Blue Ridge Parkway, “America’s Favorite Drive.”

Today, millions of visitors travel the highways and byways of the western counties of North Carolina by car, RV, and motorcycle. In fact, motorcycles have become a favorite vehicle for travelers from across the country and around the world.

Wheels Through Time Museum

A premier destination for motorcycle enthusiasts and others drawn to the romance of the open highway and freedom of the bike is Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC.  For over a decade, this non-profit organization has shared its collection of over 350 historically important motorcycles and automobiles with visitors to the region.

Museum staff are knowledgeable not only about the machines beneath their roof, but also about the history of transportation and the role it played in the development of the country and in Western North Carolina.
