The Bicycle Museum of America kind of blends in with the rest of the downtown New Bremen buildings and at first glance you don't think that the museum could contain so many bikes, but you would be surprised according to museum coordinator Becky Macwhinney.

Jim Dicke II of Crown Equipment Corporation is the silent partner behind the bicycle museum which he brought from Chicago to New Bremen.

Macwhinney says the museum showcases an extensive history of bicycles.

A lot of unusual bikes are on display, including the bike that Pee Wee Herman rode in the movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure and two bicycles that belonged to the late Robin Williams.

The Bicycle Museum of America is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.

Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and a $1 for students. Those five and under get in free.
