Exit 140 is a Leeds exit, however the museum is in Birmingham, AL.



http://www.barbermuseum.org/directions.html

The Barber Motorsports Park is located in the City Limits of Birmingham Alabama and lies just east of downtown off Interstate 20 Exit 140 (Leeds Exit).

Folks take swipes at each other all the time on this site. Cool. But nothing to do in Birmingham? I guess boredom is symptomatic of a closed mind.

The mailing address at the bottom says B'ham, but I was on a different page and got this address:



If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact:

Deana Whitfield at 205-702-8736 / Email: dwhitfield@barbermuseum.org

Or by mail to:

The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum

I think they were in Leeds, but now incorporated into B'ham.

The Barber facility is one ofthe most interesting places I have ever visited, very well staffed and a pleasure to go to. I would recomend it to anybody who cares about motorcycles and motorcycling. Hooray for milk!

I think this is a clear cut case of war-mongering republicans gerrymandering political districts to disenfranchise the poor downtrodden honest and hardworking peoples of inner B'ham. (insert various links and blogs here...)



Cool place though, if I'm ever down that way it'll be at the top of my to do list.

You should put together an article for MO with your digital photos of the place.

I'd like a crack at one of Hailwoods 250 6 cylinders myself. I've heard and read that the Honda collection is incredible.
