Museum of Bicycles

The Museum of Bicycles is located in one of the oldest stone buildings in Peterhof, dating from 1796. The collection includes twelve bicycles once ridden through the Peterhof parks by Russian emperors and their children.

The permanent exhibition traces the history of the bicycle in Russia, from the early “boneshaker” created for Tsar Alexander II in Paris in 1867 to a tricycle made in Great Britain in the late nineteenth century, which once belonged to Tsarevich Alexis. The museum also displays historical items and cycling accessories.

The museum is open from 10.30 am to 6 pm; ticket office closes at 5 pm

Closed every Monday
