Bicyle culture in Amsterdam, part 6: the Fietsmuseum.

Among all different types of museum in Amsterdam, (Rijk, Van Gogh, Heineken, Anne Franck, tulip, sex, hashish or torture...) I surprisingly visited the Fietsmuseum (Bike Museum). It would be quite usual for a city like Amsterdam to have a bike museum but as you know, nothing is normal in Amsterdam, this lovely and tiny museum stands in an old church !!!

It presents the history of bicycle in the Netherlands with pictures of past and present and thirty different models of bikes showing the evolution of the bicycle since it has been invented. 

If you are going to visit Amsterdam and if you're interested about bikes, you have to come pray in this holy museum and support it between two other classic museums of the city.
