We are the newest and largest Motorcycle Museum on the East Coast.

150,000 sq. ft. facility inside a 200 year old textile mill located in historic Rockville, CT.



Die-hard motorcyclist Ken Kaplan had been in the computer industry for 25 years before purchasing the 205 year old Hockanum Mill; a former textile mill that had been neglected for decades.

From loom to 'vroom'; Family owned & open 7 days, It now holds one of the largest collection of vintage and custom motorcycles in the Northeast. With over 25 different brands of motorcycles, extensive motorcycling magazine archive, and memorabilia from the most iconic events and superstars in the industry's history, there is something for every motorcycle enthusiast.

A 12,000 square foot motorcycle themed restaurant, bar, and microbrewery is coming by 2020 and will be held in the first floor of the Museum building.

We are holding several large events in 2019 including the 'Cafe Fever' and 'Rocktober' shows, the Hockanum Brew Fest, and bike nights! Click on the event tab for the full event schedule, and sign up for our newsletter for updates!
