Welcome to the all New "Monthly" Exhibit!
Our reason for going monthly rather than quarterly newsletter is simple. There is so much happening these days in the life of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame, we are very ex-cited and feel the need to keep you up to speed on our plans, travels, events, and expansion progress.
NEW! Members Only Area on Sturgis Museum Website
If you go to www.sturgismuseum.com you will see several upgrades to the site. Video is the first and most obvious addition, but even better is the all new "Members" Page. Here you will find all kinds of cool stuff that will change weekly and even daily in some cases where the museum will "take you places you have never been before."
Museum Receives Funds from Sturgis Rally Charities Foundation
The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is has received a grant from the Sturgis Rally Charities Foundation to assist with design and implementation of a new exhibit at the museum. The Sturgis Rally Charities Foundation grants funds to Sturgis area non-profits. The funds are collected through the Sturgis Chamber of Commerce motorcycle raffle and through money collected as part of the city's rally sponsorship program.
"We're thrilled to have been one of the recipients of these grant funds," said Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Executive Director Christine Paige Diers. "We're developing a new exhibit in the museum's lower level called The Early Days, and these funds will help us make that exhibit shine."
