A Quick Exit And We Landed At The Bicycle Museum of America In Ohio

My friend Cindy and I were on a road trip through Ohio and stumbled on an amazing find! We saw a sign on the Interstate that said, “Bicycle Museum of America” this exit. Guess what? We took the exit and found ourselves in New Bremen, Ohio. We found one of the BEST museums that I have ever set foot in. With less than a 1/2 hour to spare, we squeezed a quick visit in. Anne collected our $3.00 admission fee and we had the time of our lives.

Bicycle Museum Car


The best part of this visit, was riding this bicycle with Cindy of Traveling Adventures of a Farm Girl.


Pee-Wee Herman & Robin Williams Bicycle Collections

Fans of Pee-Wee Herman will also be impressed. I loved all that this museum had to offer. It seemed like things were more fun around every single corner. There were bicycles from Robin William’s collection as well. Take a peek!

The first bicycles that were produced looked horrific to me. They were rough and I’m not sure how anyone could ride them.

Bicycle Museum of America

Remember the banana seat bicycle? They had several of them in the museum. I took note, as I had always wanted a bicycle with a banana seat as a child. Instead, I had the blue handled 10-speed bicycle that I rode on a gravel road. Yes, you read that correctly.

Childhood Memories at The Bicycle Museum of America

There were so many memories of my childhood in this museum. How I wished we would have had more time to spare. I’d love a return visit, as there was so much to see! The streetscape looked charming and the restaurants nearby smelled really, really good! From the free parking to easy access, the Bicycle Museum of America is a MUST see!
