Solid Ground: a History of the Birdwood Mill

Until 1998, the National Motor Museum’s collection was all housed in the old Birdwood Mill. This new exhibition journeys through the history of the site – from its origins before German settlers established the town and built the first flour mill to its abandonment and new life as a museum.

Step into the basement of the beautiful heritage mill to see original milling equipment as well as the luxurious Brough Superior motorbike owned by museum founder Jack Kaines, one of the first objects in the collection. The exhibition will be open from 20 November 2015, exactly 50 years after the museum was first opened.

Free with general admission.
