In a surprising announcement on January 28, 2023, the National Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in Anamosa, Iowa revealed its plans to permanently close its doors in September 2023. The decision came after years of financial struggles attributed to low visitation. The museum's founders, John and Jill Parham, who also established J&P Cycles, moved the museum to Anamosa in 2001. Sadly, John Parham passed away in 2017.

As a non-profit organization, the museum has sought legal counsel to ensure a proper closure process. Bikes lent to the museum by owners have been notified, and the museum intends to liquidate its motorcycle collection through an auction to settle outstanding bills. The Parham Collection, amassed by John and Jill Parham over the years, will also be part of the auction.

The museum plans to remain open until September 5, 2023, allowing Sturgis visitors and attendees of the Blackhawk MC meet in Davenport a final opportunity to visit. Updated museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with Sundays and Mondays closed until the end of March.
