There is a general museum dedicated to Crystal Palace. But speedway is included among its many exhibits. Here's a guide to the Museum:

I thought it easier if you just tell us rather than 100" s of people bombarding them with the same question.....

​I passed the home base of the Crystal Palace Museum about an hour ago and noticed that some work was going on in the outside area. But I was also told what is taking place will be finished today (Saturday) and that the usual opening period for the museum is as shown in the latest information regarding the venue.

That is great news,but strangely doesn't answer what is a relatively easy question to answer if you have visited the museum,which I take it you have?

The Museum was opened on 17th June 1990 by the Duke of Devonshire after eleven years of campaigning by local enthusiasts. During this time exhibits were acquired, usually through generous donations by members of the public, classified and catalogued.

The museum is an incorporated registered charity managed by a Board of Trustees. It is accredited by the Arts Council and is a member of AIM (The Association of Independent Museums).
There is no disabled access to the museum as access is via a flight of steps. We also do not have refreshment or toilet facilities but these are available within a few minutes walk of the museum.
Open Sundays (11am-4pm)
Optional Guided Tour at 12 Noon on 1st Sunday of each month (Apr-Oct)
Address
Crystal Palace Museum, Anerley Hill, SE19 2BA

This book by the late Lionel Crossley - a former pioneer Palace rider - is a brilliant history of Crystal Palace speedway happenings.

The Crystal Palace Foundation has close links with the Crystal Palace Museum.

I remember this opening of the Crystal Palace Museum very well. Because I lived in the area, I was asked to forsake my usual desk job at the 'South London Press' and report on the opening. However, I found the museum so interesting and with the addition of various items over the years it was not my last visit there.

Guess it shows perfectly your mentality then,that you could answer a question to help inform people,but choose not to....

The Crystal Palace Museum is a Charitable Trust and is open on Sundays (11am-4pm).

The museum is free to visit but donations are welcome. A team of volunteer stewards are on hand to provide information and answer any questions.
