TT exhibition opens

A stunning new exhibition charting the 100 year history of the TT has opened at the Manx Museum.

The culmination of 18 months work, it covers a massive 300 square metres of floor space!

A huge variety of biking memoribilia has been donated by museums and collectors from around the world.

And the exhibition pays homage to all those who have played a part in TT history, including riders, fans, marshals and mechanics.

A hundred special faces appear on a big display, as Social History Curator Matthew Richardson explains (audio file attached):
