20/10/20 Update: The National Cycle Museum will be closed from Friday 23rd October for two weeks as part of the national lockdown in Wales.
The museum is open on Tuesday and Wednesday this week from 10am-4pm and on Friday from 10am-2pm.
The museum, which has received various donated items since it reopened in August, is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 4pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm, subject to current Covid-19 rules.
From October 19-31, one school age child will be allowed into the museum free with each paying adult. Children are asked to bring a pencil, paper and board with them if they would like a rare chance to sketch a Penny Farthing or an unusual American Eagle cycle, which are two of the most popular displays.
The museum would, under normal circumstances, supply the drawing items, but Covid rules stipulate that it’s safer for children to bring their own.
The Automobile Palace, an ornate, Grade 2 Listed, Art Deco building, was built for Tom Norton senior in two stages, beginning in 1911. The building was originally known as The Palace of Sport.
To donate to the charitable trust, the finances of which have been impacted by Covid-19, send a cheque to the National Cycle Museum, Automobile Palace, Temple Street, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LD1 5DL.
