  • Have stopped here many times on visits to the area and always enjoy the museum. Good history and remembrances of the days when I rode bikes. Good collections of old bikes.

  • An excellent experience! Having worked at and helped manage a Schwinn shop many years ago, it was a trip down memory lane. The staff were friendly and welcoming and great with my three rambunctious boys. Highly recommended if you like bicycles at all, and who doesn't.
  • As cycling history nut, I really enjoyed this museum. I was impressed the the quantity and quality of bicycles they have on display. They have a much larger number in storage which they apparently switch out quite often. I think there's something here to like for everyone, but if you're not a cycling person, you might not be as engrossed as there's not too much displayed in terms of historical information and stories.
  • We were camping at Wapakoneta, OH. Thankfully, the RV park had a brochure for this museum. We enjoy visiting such as auto museums and aircraft museums, so I thought we would check it out. It was a 17 mile drive for us and well worth the time. We were greeted by a most friendly and informative docent, John. The visit begins with a video. Next the docent provided us with a self-guided pamphlet, and then he accompanied us about the first floor. There are bicycles on display the likes of which we have never seen before. There is also other collections on display such as gems and minerals and police and bicycle badges.
  • Plenty of interesting, quirky, and fun things to see and learn about at this wonderful museum!
  • Fascinating even for non bicycle riders. Extremely helpful personnel.
