    Currently located a few blocks from KBHM and not in the best neighborhood. The new location is east of Birmingham (Leeds AL) off of I-20 at the Barber race track. I wish they could have built it in view of I-20 myself to attract more visitors from the interstate but at least this gets it out of the area it's now in. Barber Motorsports Park has the racetrack (Indy Car has a race there every year), Porsche Driving School, and auto and motorcycle races.

    Here's a link to the racetrack:

    The largest motorcycle museum is located here also.

    Barber is a nice facility. The bike museum is awesome, it's sensory overload if you like motorcycles.

    Yes, Barber is a nice facility. I've visited the motorcycle museum (impressively huge!), and a friend drives in one of the car races every year.

    If I want to visit the Aviation Museum after they move, where do I land???

    I-20 nearby! ;):D

    I guess KBHM the closest. I was hoping they'd move it south near KEET.
