National Cycle Collection
The National Cycle Museum (Welsh: Casgliad beicio cenedlaethol) for the UK is a collection of bicycles through the ages established in 1997, and located in Llandrindod Wells, Wales, United Kingdom. It contains around 250 bicycles from 1818 to 2018, including a large collection of penny farthings and solid tyred safety bicycles, as well as cycling books, accessories and paraphernalia.
The building and site was known as The Automobile Palace, a project of bicycle shop owner Tom Norton who bought the site in 1906 for his expanding business. The building was initially completed in 1911 in an Art Deco style and then tripled in size, to the same standard, in 1919. It has received a Grade II* heritage listing, being "an exceptionally early grid-pattern steel-framed building surviving largely unaltered".
