National Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame
The National Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame reopened in its new home in Anamosa in 2001.  The extensive collection of motorcycles and memorabilia will have you spending hours pouring over the thousands of items on display.  For those who grew up with motorcycles, the museum unleashes a torrent of memories.  There are more than 60 vintage and antique motorcycles in the main showroom, from a 1908 Indian Racer to a 1998 Captain America replica of the chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in the film "Easy Rider."
