Opens Oct. 1; Closes TBD
First Floor, East within “America on the Move” 

The Flying Merkel brand of motorcycles was produced in Philadelphia and Ohio from around 1910 to 1916. The motorcycles, with their distinctive orange color were popular; however, high prices, competition from Ford’s Model T and World War I, put the company out of business. The motorcycle is now on display in connection with the museum’s “America on the Move” exhibition.
