Thieves attacked trophy cabinets and ruined the displays in the museum’s inner foyer at around 11pm.
“Each of the museum’s trophy cabinets were smashed, causing substantial damage to the displays,” said James Hewing, the Director of the Museum.
“Many of the trophies and TT replicas have little ‘scrap’ value, but are unique and irreplaceable as part of this country’s Motorcycling Heritage.”
The Museum reopened as normal this morning. Anyone with information should contact 01675 443311.
