Just about everyone knows what a bicycle is. Most of us learned to ride them as children, and some of us use them on a daily basis: for sport, as transportation or simply because it’s fun. Despite our understanding of how to use them, it seems that few of us have had the opportunity to look at bicycles a little more closely and to discover their engineering, historic, scientific, and social contexts.
This exhibition offers three main perspectives on bicycles: the machine, the rider, and the relationship between the bicycle’s development and social and environmental issues. The highly interactive exhibition includes over 50 artifacts, 20 interactives and 25 videos, which will enhance the visitor’s learning and understanding in an engaging and active way.
