The Manx Museum's The Manx Motorcycle Heritage exhibit is sure to please TT Festival goers.  Admission is free and you can see some classic motors ridden by some of the TT's finest racers of yesteryear. While you're there, make sure you see the Social History Gallaries to learn the story of Mann.  You'll soon be speaking in the native Manx language!

The Manx Museum is in the centre of Douglas.  Ring 648000 for more information.



Yup!  It's true!  Just in time for TT Festival 2006, Basking sharks have arrived near the Isle of Man! I've heard of hammer heads, but motor heads?  There have been 25+ sightings of these creatures at the south end of the island, near Port Erin, Port St Mary and around the Calf of Man. They are harmless and kinda cute.  Let us know if you spot them!  new shark
