5 things to know about Springfield History Museum’s motorcycle exhibit

The Springfield History Museum recently opened “Motorcycles in Springfield, 1900-1939,” an exhibit examining the role of motorcycles in entertainment and daily life in Springfield and Lane County.

Springfield History Museum’s newest exhibit shines a light on the city’s early motorcycle culture.

“Motorcycles in Springfield, 1900-1939” is a new temporary exhibit featuring historic motorcycles, photographs, newspaper clippings and more.

“To me, a successful exhibit is when we see a big broad topic, like motorcycle history, and then we get to see the impact that Springfield had on it,” said exhibit curator Maddi McGraw. “(People) really get to see their roles in the community and get to kind of see them come alive.”

The exhibit is on view now through December. McGraw said she hopes there will be some additions over the next six months.
