With thrills, nostalgia and inspiration, join the Museum on a surprising and emotional journey through 150 years of innovation and find out about the people who made it happen. Apart from objects on display at the Museum they also have a ‘running' collection of cycles, motorcycles and vehicles that is used for educational, outreach and promotional activities.
