We recently told you about a fire that destroyed Europe’s largest motorcycle museum. On January 17th and 18th, 2021, the Top Mountain Crosspoint Motorcycle Museum first floor fell into ruins. Apparently, a defective large screen monitor in the museum’s exhibition room is the cause.
By the time the flames were extinguished, the top floor housing the motorcycle exhibits lying in ruin at ground level. The first floor’s concrete pillars are all that remains of the once immaculate exhibit area.
Unfortunately, the museum’s complete collection of over 200 motorcycles are no more. And, more unsettling is the fact that more than the museum owners’ machines are lost. Unfortunately, many of the exhibits are the property of other museums and private individuals. And those exhibits are now gone as well.
But the Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum will be re-built. According to the museum’s website:
In every disaster there is also a new beginning. The evacuation work has been completed and work is already underway to rebuild the TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum. We will do our best to offer an equivalent museum experience again in the foreseeable future.
The website goes on to say that the clean-up work of the museum is now complete. And, reconstruction of the Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum is already ongoing.
