In the ongoing measures to combat the spread of COVID-19, the Museum is currently closed. Our greatest priority is the health and safety of all, and we look forward to reopening the Museum when appropriate. Thank you, The Haas Team

The Haas Collection

Motorcycling is a passion that exerts an intoxicating grip on any soul it touches. But you need not twist a throttle or feel the road below to experience the passion or feel the raw escape.  Just walk through the expansive portal of The Haas Moto Museum, and you will instantly feel its grip. 

The sheer expanse of The Haas Collection, with over 200 motorcycles spanning 13 decades, housed in the Museum and the adjacent Dragon Gallery, is a joyous revival of a cultural phenomenon that continues to evolve to this day.  From the time when a crude gas tank was first strapped onto a bicycle frame to the creation of radical new designs that push the outer limits of the imagination, The Haas Collection has no equal anywhere, with its seemingly endless array of truly unique motorcycles embedded in two venues of unparalleled beauty.   

Not only does the Collection immerse you in the evolution of motorcycles from 1899 to the present day, it unveils an unparalleled collection of over 50 one-of-a-kind motorcycles—a dazzling testament to the Renaissance notion of inventors creating art for the sake of art, with no blueprint or predecessor to guide their hands.

Step into a world where the fantasy of limitless speed blends with the reality of mechanized motion, where the cycles are elevated on custom platforms and surrounded by one-off metallic sculptures that enliven the total experience.

And when you experience this gem of a Collection, the word connectivity will no longer mean what it did when you entered.  It will not refer to emails or texts—it will instead bring to mind generations of escape artists connected only to the ribbon of road that unraveled beneath their feet and the wind and the scenery that were their constant companions.

About the Museum

About the Museum

The expansive 20,000SF Haas Moto Museum & Sculpture Gallery, with its 160 cycle Collection and a premier array of metallic sculptures, is designed in an extremely user-friendly way so as to provide our guests with a comprehensive yet straightforward exposure to the major facets of motorcycle culture. 

History Hall

History Hall

History Hall offers a leisurely stroll through the entirety of motorcycle history, arranged in chronological order from late 19th century bicycle frames with attached gas tanks to the throbbing power stations of ultra-modern road warriors.  The cavernous contours of History Hall afford each cycle ample room to breathe aboard its custom-designed platform. Regardless of whether you are a newcomer to this world or a moto aficionado, the diversity of 70 motorcycles in History Hall will leave you breathless, convinced that no other place in the pantheon of motorcycle museums may boast such a collection.

Race Track

Race Track

Arranged in an oval representative of the early board tracks, The Race Track exudes raw speed, with a palpable sense of the few souls hardy enough to take flight at great risk to life and limb.  Spanning over 100 years of racing prowess, this exposure to the culture of motorcycle racing offers a distinct glimpse into a world where the ghosts of the past and the speed merchants of modern times mingle together as members of one continuous breed of man-and-machine. 

Avant-Garde Avenue

Avant-Garde Avenue

Avant-Garde Avenue is all about pushing the edges of creativity in a way that challenges the designer-builder to incorporate fresh concepts that often startle the observer. In this era in which electric power has burst on the moto scene as a major source of innovation, the Museum's e-bikes stand shoulder-to-shoulder (or battery-to-cylinder") beside the most radical designs in our Custom Collection.

The Custom Shop

 

 

The Custom Shop

The Haas Museum devotes an uncommonly large portion of its space to the 50 (and growing) occupants of The Custom Shop, a clear acknowledgement that the design and fabrication of one-off custom cycles in some sense represents the very pinnacle of motorcycle design and engineering.  No other motorcycle museum in the world may boast a collection of sheer creativity and artistic excellence that rivals The Custom Shop at The Haas Museum.

Sculptures and Artwork

Sculptures and Artwork

Along the entire 100-foot length of one wall of History Hall lies a diverse array of metallic sculptures that echo the artistry of the motorcycles that stand nearby.  Ranging in size from a series of  miniature “found metal” bikes painstakingly constructed piece-by-piece, to the life-sized "Through the Wall" trio of motorcycles crashing through walls of concrete, glass, and plaster. The outdoor Sculpture Garden features a collection of life-sized, all bronze sculptures of famous board track racers by renowned sculptor Serge Bueno, believed to be the finest such exhibit anywhere in the world.

About the Dragon Gallery

About the Dragon Gallery

The Haas Motorcycle Gallery at Dragon (located just two blocks from the Museum) offers its own extensive collection of over 60 rare cycles. As diverse as a World War I sidecar and limited edition cruisers of more recent times, the Dragon exhibits are regularly rotated with exhibits from the Museum.
