Alabama’s Motorsports Museum

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Located just 20 minutes from downtown Birmingham, Alabama, the all-new Barber Motorsports Park is already earning accolades as one of the finest racing facilities in the country – but there’s more to this park than a 2.3-mile road course: The facility is also the new home of the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. Founded in 1994, the museum debuted in its new four-story-high, glass-and-concrete headquarters in September 2003.

Among the displays is the most complete collection of vintage and modern motorcycles in the world today; the 750-plus motorcycles represent 17 countries and 125 manufacturers. The bikes share space in the 141,000-square-foot museum with the finest collection of Lotus racecars found anywhere. Along the road course that threads its way through a multi-acre complex (frequent host to national and international sportscar and motorcycle competitions), visitors will find an assortment of unique sculptures that tease the imagination. In a setting that blends nature’s beauty and man’s desire for speed, Barber’s will appeal to even the most casual
observer.
