WARREN, Ohio _  The National Packard Museum’s 17th Annual Antique Motorcycle Exhibit, “British Invasion,” opens Saturday, Jan. 7 and runs through May 27, 2017. This year’s “British Invasion” exhibit will feature 30 motorcycles manufactured by British companies as early as 1913 and as recently as 2006, from both well-known motorcycle brands like Triumph, Norton, and BSA, to lesser known marks like Abington, Sunbeam, and Velocette. Many of the motorcycles on display are on loan from owners within Northeast Ohio, demonstrating just how successful the British motorcycle invasion was locally.

The National Packard Museum’s Annual Antique Motorcycle Exhibit has historically received a number of awards and recognitions. Among these are the Antique Motorcycle Foundation’s highest honor, the “Award for Excellence,” as well as three consecutive first place awards in the Interpretive Exhibits Category from the National Association of Automobile Museums.

During the exhibit, the museum will present its popular “Coffee & Donuts” seminars. These educational programs are open to the public free of charge with paid admission to the museum.

The National Packard Museum is open Tuesday  through Saturday noon to 5 p.m., and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. For information, visit  http://www.packardmuseum.org, or call 330-394-1899.
