The Isle of Man Motor Museum is pleased to announce that an Isle of Man TT Races Museum will be opening within the Isle of Man Motor Museum in Jurby in time for TT 2018.
As part of this new museum, the team will be creating a ‘Wall of Bikes’ that will illustrate the TT’s inextricable links to the development and growth of the motorcycle industry in its 110 year history, from the early British marques to the later dominance of the Japanese manufacturers.
The initiative will increase the number of bikes on display in the museum to over four hundred machines. Other TT attractions in the Isle of Man Motor Museum will include an original version of the iconic Glencrutchery Road start line gantry, which will give visitors a unique photo opportunity.
The museum will carry the Official Isle of Man TT Races logo and the display of bikes will also coincide with the 100th TT Races meeting in 2019.
The museum will work with local historians, archivists and interested groups and organisations to ensure that its story is authentic and represents the true history of the event. It is also appealing to motorcycle collectors who have machines that they may wish to publicly display as part of the exhibition.
The weekend also marks the second anniversary of the Isle of Man Motor Museum opening and there is a full calendar of events happening to celebrate.
