It was announced recently that the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa, is relocating to a larger venue. While the museum’s new location will remain in Anamosa, the venue’s new address has yet to be disclosed. Museum officials stated that it will be a much larger facility and will better house the motorcycles and historical artifacts the museum has in its possession. “I want to take the Museum to the next level. Plans are still in the early stages, but we will be moving to a better, larger structure still in Anamosa, Iowa. The new space will allow us to present our collection of over 225 motorcycles and thousands of great pieces of motorcycling memorabilia in a much more exciting way,” said John Parham, president of the National Motorcycle Museum.
Parham was also excited to announce the addition of Mark Mederski, who will serve as the special projects director for the National Motorcycle Museum. Mark has over 20 years experience in museum design and marketing and will be in charge of the elaborate project to refit a building twice the size of the current space, produce the exhibition designs and oversee reinstallation of all of the exhibits the Museum has. “I see this as the best opportunity I’ve ever been offered to work with a fantastic permanent collection, a perfect piece of architecture and with a great team lead by John Parham.” Mederski offered, “If you have a passion for great old motorcycles, and related materials, and the interesting stories of the people that invented, rode and raced them, we will deliver an exciting, yet educational experience.”
In the meantime the Museum will remain open at its current location until further notice. For more information, visit the Museum’s website.
