The Isle of Man Motor Museum are pleased to announce that their Isle of Man TT Museum will be opened in Jurby on Friday 25th May. We are honoured that the official opening will be performed by Gary Thompson MBE BEM, Clerk of the TT Course and General Secretary of the Auto-Cycle Union.
As part of this exciting new development, the Museum team will be increasing the number of motorcycles on display from 200 to almost 400 through the creation of a Wall of Bikes and other new displays. TT Memorabilia is being displayed throughout the Museum, on the walls and in their specially designed toolbox display cabinets. A replica of an iconic Marshals Hut from the Mountain has also been created to pay tribute to the Marshals without whom the TT could not occur. They are also very privileged to showcase the collection of Bob McIntyre — the first rider to complete a lap at over 100mph average speed.
Just as the Isle of Man Motor Museum continually evolves and changes, so too will the Isle of Man TT Museum. The museum asks all TT fans and collectors to please let them know what gems you have hidden in your garage, shed, attic, drawer or under the bed which could help them make the Museum even more spectacular. They also appeal to motorcycle collectors who have machines that they may wish to display to please contact the museum.
The museum volunteers always love sharing stories with visitors and hearing them recount their own experiences of the TT. If this would interest you, then please ask them about volunteering at the Museum.
Darren Cunningham, Director of the Isle of Man Motor Museum said "This is a very exciting time for all of the team at the Isle of Man Motor Museum and we are extremely proud to be able to showcase the 110 years of motorsport history behind the world’s ultimate road race."
