Hall of Fame

The sport of motorcycling has an incredibly rich history in the United States, and the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame exists to celebrate and commemorate that history. Established in 1998 by the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame honors the legends and heroes of American motorcycling and highlights their many achievements and contributions to the sport.

Each year the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame inducts even more pioneers and competitors who formed the foundation of motorcycling in America, all of whom are commemorated in the hallowed Hall of Fame gallery located within the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio.

The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame features two floors of exhibits for guests to enjoy, with rotating themed exhibits and historic motorcycles from the museum’s permanent collection displayed on the first level. The upper level is the Hall of Fame gallery, honoring the lives and careers of AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame members, as well as other men and women who have shaped motorcycling in America through their contributions to racing, rider rights, motorcycle design, ambassadorship, and more.

Individuals and groups are invited to visit the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum. If your motorcycle club or riding group wants to visit—or start a ride to or from the Hall of Fame facility—we encourage you to call ahead to schedule your visit so we can ensure the best experience for everyone. Call (614) 856-2222 or email info@motorcyclemuseum.org to make arrangements.

The museum, located on the larger AMA campus, is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.

AMA members can visit the museum free of charge. Non-member rates are $10 for adults, $3 for students and $8 for seniors. Children 11-and-under can visit for free with an accompanying adult. The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is proud to be a Blue Star Museum, which offers free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families from Armed Forces Day (May 21) until Labor Day (Sept. 5). Military veterans enjoy a discounted rate of $5 to enter the museum.

The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame exists to collect, record, preserve and honor the people and events that compose the rich history of motorcycling in America. One of the primary functions of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame is to administer the process that inducts new members. That process begins with nominee applications submitted by the public. Please download a nominee application if you have someone to recommend for induction into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
