Wheels Through Time celebrates reopening

The Wheels Through Time Museum had a grand reopening in Maggie Valley after resuming five-day per week operations earlier this summer.

Heralded as the “Smithsonian of Motorcycles,” the museum is regarded as one of the world’s premier destinations for motorcycle and transportation history, touted by its visitors as an “American cultural experience.”

“The museum has the ability to bring unprecedented amounts of visitors to the valley, and with the community and state behind it, we think that 2010 can be one of Maggie Valley’s best years yet,” said Maggie Valley Alderman Scott Pauley.

The new exhibits have already generated huge interest from motorcycle industry leaders and press. They are slated to run through Memorial Day Weekend 2011.
