    I'll just add that they have some 200 bicycles on display in this three story museum on Main (West Monroe) Street. The display is awesome, and the curator indicated that they have another +\- 2000 in ...  more »

    The Bicycle Museum is amazing. It was a great stop on our road trip. We happened to see the sign on the highway and made an impromptu stop. It was so worth it! The admission fee is a nominal donation, and if you enjoy bicycles they have an supreme collection! The staff was passionate and very helpful. We really enjoyed our stop. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for anyone that enjoys bicycles, history, etc.

    This place is awesome. The collection is incredible, the staff is knowledgeable and enjoyable to talk to. Off the beaten path in a nice small midwestern town. Definitely worth the extra drive time. Better yet, take the back roads to get here and enjoy the ride.

    Fabulous collection of vintage and modem bicycles. You can even try pedaling an old high wheeler.

    This has to be my all time favorite museum. Disclaimer: I'm a cyclist. There are loads of wacky bikes that you can try and admire, tons of information, and better yet it shows the evolution of an amazing sport. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

    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.
