One of the numerous cool things to do and see during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is to visit the Sturgis Museum and the Hall of Fame. The Museum is an educational walkthrough of time showing the past as well as the present and future of motorcycling, so visiting the museum will definitely be a memorable part of your trip to Sturgis.
Since the Museum opened in 2001, it has gathered, and continues to gather, a wide variety of amazing antique to classic era motorcycles and memorabilia. The goal is to preserve the history of motorcycling and to showcase the history of the Sturgis Rally, which is done exceptionally well.
The Hall of Fame pays tribute to those individuals and companies that have made a substantial impact in the world of motorcycles. It contains both the big names in the industry as well as the lesser known. That being said, the lesser known people are still very significant in the annals of motorcycling and it is cool to learn about them.
Also inside of the Museum is the Freedom Fighters Hall of Fame. These inductees are honored because of their contributions to protect the rights of those who ride. As such, you as a rider can and are welcome to submit nominations.
The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, Sturgis Hall of Fame and Freedom Fighters’ Hall of Fame are all located at 999 Main Street off of Junction Avenue in Downtown Sturgis. Hopefully you will be able to check them out at this year’s 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
