Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Breaking the journey to South Wales we chose to visit the museum. I was worried that my wife who does not cycle would find it interesting. I needn't of worried the museum starts with the earliest bikes and moves through the ages to carbon fibre. Interspersed are various displays i.e. a camping holiday on bikes. Some bikes stir memories such as the Hercules bike of my childhood. The gentleman and lady of the museum were very knowledgeable and we passed a large part of out time chatting.
Would recommend a visit,

This is a gem of a specialist museum - a must for every cycle rider, of which there are many. And why aren't the cycle enthusiasts giving this museum their support by volunteering.? There can't be many people who haven't at some time ridden a bicycle and this is so filled with the nostalgia as well as the future of cycling.
I don't know how many cycles are in the museum, but there is one for everyone to relate to. Please go to see Frieda and her volunteering help and also the jumble sale in July

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
