Long time visitor to this museum, Visited today with some friends with the idea of showing them the Black Hole which is part of the history of Peel, What did I find? someone with plenty of money has vandalised it by painting it white, putting in bright lighting, and over restored motorcycles. Presumably when they leave they will have the... More

Bumped by accident into this museum while walking to the house of Manannan, it is free and it takes a few minutes to cover. First floor there are a good vintage bikes and interesting pics; in the second floor they have nice collection and newer bikes from the TT. Nice surprise

I was in Peel for the bike show and just stumbled upon this place by accident whilst trying to avoid the rain. I'm glad I did. For a start it was free but more than that it was loaded up with things to see, It was a tiny little place and I believe it used to be the old courthouse.... More

This small museum is on two floors. Downstairs there are several motorcycles and there are a few more upstairs with some other eclectic artefacts. It was free so we popped in on the way back to the bus. Certainly not a must go to destination but interesting enough to while away a few minutes in Peel.

Roy was helpful in trying to find family history in addition to learning about the museum holdings. So many artifacts to see and read about.

Two floors of exhibits, nothing startling but interesting enough. A good place to visit if it's raining. The owner is friendly and will explain the items and their history.

Very small local museum that's free. Didn't expect much but was actually really interesting. Had a collection of TT bikes and all artefacts and stories were about Peel only. Had an amazing collection of world war internee vases made of animal bones. Also a section on the sinking of the Lusitania and a local boat that saved 150 people. Maybe... More
