National Motorcycle Museum announces reopening plans
The National Motorcycle Museum (NMM) has publicly unveiled its plans to reopen as the current COVID-19 lockdown eases.
As the BMF has reported, the NMM was obliged to close last year due to the pandemic but it raised funds using public appeals and raffles to help facilitate eventual reopening.
Now, a statement by the NMM has confirmed: “As promised, following the recent announcement of HM Government’s ‘roadmap’ out of restrictions, the funds raised are being used directly for the purpose of reopening the museum to visitors. At the present time, and if the ‘roadmap’ goes to plan, we intend to reopen the museum to visitors on Monday 17th May 2021.”
The statement added that the reopening on Monday 17th May would include the museum’s collection, shop and restaurant. The NMM expressed the hope that it would be able to sustain a full seven-days-a-week service from Monday 21st June.
The NMM also released details of its ‘Museum Triumph over Adversity Recovery Appeal Raffle’, which includes the following prizes:
1st prize: Brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660cc motorcycle (pictured)
2nd prize: 1978 Triumph Trident T160 750cc motorcycle
3rd prize: 1956 Triumph Tiger T100 500cc motorcycle
The prize draw will take place at the NMM on Friday 25th June and tickets cost £6. Further information can be found on the NMM’s website here.
