Barber in Birmingham

For those of you who are thinking about stopping by the new Barber museum or track near birmingham, I just spent the weekend there with the BMW RA rally, words fail to describe that place.

i'm not sure i understand completely.

is this a museum on people who cut hair? do they actually have a museum like that? whywould someone want ot go to that? there are actually "famous" barbers?

and does "words fail to describe" mean the place sucked?

i'm not being nieve either, i really don't understand.

Saw some large pictures of the bikes at the Barber Museum, on another board, & man do they ever have a collection along with something like 3 floors. I could spend all day there just looking at the bikes.

I think it was 5 floors, and I did. A real dream for a bike nut like me. Btw, you can seea good part of the track from the museum, go when there is a race if you can.
