Sadly, the window at the front of the building was as far as we got.

IMPORTANT... Check the opening times, before you visit!
We spent Wednesday in the town and found the museum only opens two days in the week and weekends... Wednesday not being one of them. Just bad luck on our part, but it was not the reason we visited the town itself.

The museum is in part of a wonderful building old, sadly most of the building is now empty, the rest a job centre. Because it was closed, we visited the nearby County Museum, which was great.

Good for a quick visit

Visited here after checking out of our hotel, just for a quick thing to do before setting off on our journey home. Enjoyed looking at the evolution of bikes throughout the years, they have a good selection and it’s very interesting to see all the different designs they tried.

Surprisingly very interesting museum
Sep 2020
What a lovely little museum, much bigger than I imagined but very very interesting and glad we stopped by for a look on our journey home from Beaulah

Everyone involved with it, all volunteers, I feel are very passionate about it,from the guides who take you around to whoever polishes and does all the dusting.

Allan (who happens to be my Dad) gave us a very imformative tour and is very knowledgeable of all that is on display and I'm very proud of him for being involved with it.

Impressed

I was impressed that a topic that didn’t particularly interest me drew me in! Excellent lady with a real passion and knowledge was most welcoming! And I have to mention how clean it is! Exhibits must be dusted very regularly and genuinely cared for- highly recommended!

Thank you very much for a glowing review . We try to make the displays as interesting as possible for our visitors, as a bicycle museum may not sound an interesting place to visit Very pleased that you enjoyed the experience

Beautiful Bicycles
Aug 2019 • Couples
Amazing and fascinating collection of bicycles of every age, shape, style and purpose, from a large number of different manufacturers. A significant presentation of cycling history as well as social history. Well worth a visit.

A Lifetime of Bicycles
Jul 2019 • Friends
From the earliest foot-propelled bicycles, through to pedal power in all its forms, this museum is a must visit for all the family, even if you are not particularly keen on cycling.

Great for bike lovers
Jun 2019 • Solo
Dropped into this charming Museum while on business in Llandrindod. If you've got an hour to spare, this is a great little place to learn about the development of bikes, from the hobby horse to velocipede, penny farthing to the safety bike.

Great blend of history, engineering and just for looking at a wide range of bikes.

As a bonus, I was allowed to ride an adult tricycle around for a bit, I loved it!

Small quirky museum with bikes from iron to carbon-fibre. Friendly volunteer staff. Go there and find the bikes from your youth.
