Estonian Bicycle Museum
Bicycle through history, history through the bicycle
The Estonian Bicycle Museum presents the history of bicycles as a means of transportation in Estonia from the 19th century until 1991. In the museum’s seven rooms, over 160 historical bicycles are on display. The focus is on bicycles manufactured in Estonia in the 1920s and 1930s, when there was a significant domestic bicycle industry.
In addition to bicycles, visitors can also explore other small-scale technology from the “golden age of bicycles” in the 1920s and 1930s, such as gramophones, radios, telephones, typewriters, and more.
The Estonian Bicycle Museum is located in the historic Väätsa parish house, built in 1893, which has been renovated and furnished in the style of the 1920s and 1930s. The museum building was reconstructed from a medieval roadside inn, constructed around the 15th or 16th century, which served as a central point in the Estonian road network at that time.
