Reflections in Chrome - A Motorcycle Retrospective
February 5 - April 24, 2016
10am - 4pm
Albertans love their motorbikes! Heritage Park Historical Village is excited to open a brand new temporary exhibit in Gasoline Alley Museum that sheds a little light and insight on our love affair with these two-wheelers.
Reflections in Chrome - A Motorcycle Retrospective features 40 bikes from the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group - Rocky Mountain Section, and other area collections. Guests can see a variety of bikes ranging from a 1905 Armac to a 2014 Harley Davidson FLHTP Police Special, and everything in between.
This exhibit explores the enormous magnitude of the motorcycle; from first rides to dream machines, pleasure rides to service cycles, racers, choppers, cruisers and a whole lot more. View unique photographs of motorcycling in Alberta, and vintage advertisements; explore how motorcycles have permeated pop culture through music and song, check out vintage riding gear and uniforms and compare them to what we wear today.
Come and get your fix of all things motorcycle - activities included with admission feature:
DAILY TOURS - If these bikes could talk, they would have endless stories to tell – learn about some of the epic journeys each one has been on and what they reflect in innovation, pop culture, sport, design, and leisure.

PHOTO OP - Imagine yourself winding through the majestic Rocky Mountains as you sit astride a 1975 Ducati 860GT – don a motorcycle helmet and some leather for an instagram worthy photo. There’s even a junior bike for the younger enthusiasts!
