This is a very well-organized museum and it contains the most antique bicycles I have ever seen! There is a written guide book in English. We spent an hour at the museum, which was sufficient. The museum has three floors and the typical narrow staircases of this country. I'm not sure if there is an elevator. I learned a lot... More

If you love bicycles, I highly recommend you do not miss this absolutely wonderful collection of antique bicycles and accessories. There are bicycles of every kind--casual riding, riding in style, service bicycles and racing bicycles. Unusual bicycles of all types and sizes.

I would totally recommend visiting this museum when you are at Nijmegen. It will be interesting not only for bicycle lovers (like I am), but absolutely for anyone. Museum is a private collection of bicycles from different epochs. You can see how bicycle changed over time. Be aware that all signs and descriptions are in Dutch. You can take a... More

Holland is all about bikes so it's only logical there's a bicycle museum. We went there with 2 small kids (4 and 6) and it was fun. It's not too big so we were out in an hour or so. It's nice to see how bikes evolved from the 1800s to today. Price is alright so if you're around give... More

Meh... This museum was quite average to me. There are a LOT of bikes but not very many explanations of how bikes worked, developed, etc. €5 is not thAt much money but I felt it was a waste

We visited this museum on a recent trip to Nijmegen. They have 3 floors of amazing cycles of all kinds dating from the 1800s to the modern day. The floors are small though, and the bikes are really jam-packed in there, which for me created a lot of visual noise. Nevertheless, it was a fascinating look at the history of... More

We are touring cyclists and enjoyed viewing the MANY wonderful examples of bicycles and accessories. There is a guide in English. Almost all the cycles are labeled. There are 3 floors ! You will learn so much and be truly more knowledgable about bicycles after this visit.

Interested in Bicycles and their History, then this Museum is a definite MUST to visit if in the area. From the ground floor up you will find possibly the finest and largest collection of machines gathered in one place . . . . the earliest on the ground floor date from 1817 together with plenty of memorabilia taking you to...

For a die-hard bike enthusiast this would be a fascinating attraction. I cycle very often and love bikes, but I did not love this place. The entrance fee was not too costly (can't remember exact figures) but it's just as well. There's a wide array of very interesting models dating from hundreds of years back to the present day, but...

I'm Dutch so I happen to like bicycle but you could give it a try. Location is also nice at the banks of the Waal river (branch of the rhine river) with lots of restaurants in the neigbourhood and 500 m from the centre of the oldest dutch city
