Sketch of the future Sturgis Motorcycle Museum

It’s been a busy summer and there is exciting news we want to share with you!

Scott Peterson, of Scott Peterson Ford, has donated land for the second larger Museum site!

This site will be off of exit 32 and visible from the I-90. In addition to the Peterson’s gift, Board Member, Bruce Eide generously donated the fees for architectural design firm, 4FrontDesign, Inc. They have completed the preliminary plans for the second site.

The larger building will house the Hall of Fame, pre-1938 collection and various galleries.

Featured Galleries
Meeting Rooms
Gift Shop
