Irbit State Motorcycle Museum, Irbit

4.5
The Irbit State Motorcycle Museum was created as a State Museum of the Russian Federation to protect the former IMZ Factory Museum from sale and dispersal. The museum was officially opened on June 25, 2004 as the Irbit Motorcycle Museum. The keystone of the museum was the collection of the Design Department of the IMZ factory acquired by local authorities in 2002. It is temporarily housed in a building at 100a Ulitsa Soviestskaya, in Irbit, while a permanent home is built in Ulitsa Lenina. It received the status of a State Museum of the Russian Federation on January 1, 2006. The museum contains an extensive collection of production, racing and prototype bikes from the IMZ-Ural Factory as well as many foreign models from a wide range of manufacturers. The collection is unique in its display of the development of the Russian heavy motorcycle.

Its current Director is Alexandr Ilyitch Bulanov, a notable historian in the town of Irbit as well as a Guinness Book of Records-holder for Ural motorcycles.

  • According to Wikipedia, this is the only Motorcycle Museum in Russia, having the status of "State". It was created on the basis of available collections, Irbit motorcycle plant. In the Museum's Fund more than 120-minute transport units. This heavy-class motorcycles, automobiles, all-terrain vehicles produce IMZ. In the exhibition there is a model of the leading motorcycle firms in England, Germany, Italy, the United States and Japan. There is a museum with Tuesday to Friday: 09:00-17:00; in 09:00-16:00 Saturday, Sunday: closed. We took the tour, liked it very much even we women, far from technology. Recommend!
