Top Mountain Crosspoint Museum plans to reopen as early as winter 2021

Whilst the museum and all the contents may have burnt to the ground, hope lives on that a new Top Mountain Crosspoint museum will raise from the ashes.

LIKE a phoenix, it seems like the Top Mountain Crosspoint museum will raise from the ashes, bigger, better, and hopefully fitted with sprinklers. 

Going back to the start of the year, we came across news that Europe’s highest altitude museum (at 2,200 metres above sea level) had gone up in flames, with an update 10 days later of footage of the destroyed motorcycles

It appears that the original cause of the blaze was a faulty display, leading to the entire wooden structure going up in flames. Despite the best efforts from local firefighters, the museum was lost - but the nearby ski-lift and restaurant were saved. 

Well, now it seems the Passo del Rombo museum will live to see another day, just in a different form - and a list of 250 motorcycles has already been promised by collectors from around the world. 

Top Mountain Crosspoint Museum to be rebuilt

Brothers Attila and Alban Scheiber, the founders of the Top Mountain Crosspoint museum, have said:

"We want to offer more than a world of experiences, the goal is to offer something also to non-motorcyclists. There will be 250 motorcycles already promised by collectors from all over the world.”

It appears that the reconstruction effort will follow the plans they had previously drafted for an expansion to the original site - albeit this now being an expansion from the ground up. We can only hope that much more stringent anti-fire devices will be fitted.
