Fall Hours: Thursday - Sunday 11am-5pm ... Come celebrate with us!

The Marin Museum of Bicycling is a premier bicycle history museum and cultural center in Fairfax, California. We display key examples from the 19th century Golden Age of Cycling, an expanded Mountain Bike Hall of Fame showing the evolution of the mountain bike, and several more bicycles in a variety of genres. 


Creating a bicycling museum in Marin County is a decades-long dream that has finally  become a reality.  In 2013 our all-volunteer team in Fairfax began to set up our nonprofit, design our space, and arrange for long-term loans of extraordinary bikes dating from 1868 onward. Working with the team in Crested Butte, Colorado, we moved the Hall of Fame to Fairfax, and we added many more bikes to the collection.  Now, after almost three years of volunteer work, planning the museum, expanding our collections and fabricating our exhibits, the bikes, biographies, photos and Fame are on display.

Project now 50% complete!

Thank you everyone who donated to the Legacy Wall Quarter 2 drive! We completed the Quarter 2 brick installation in April 2015, so we are halfway through the project. The wall looks fantastic. Stop by when you’re in the neighborhood and take a look. There are some really great tiles! Each Legacy Wall brick tile purchase helps fund expenses of creating the Marin Museum of Bicycling, the new home of the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and the Igler Collection of 19th-century bicycles. This is our biggest fundraiser, and it’s a way for you, your family or your group to show your support. We are now selling tiles for the Museum side of the wall, which is visible from the museum itself. Space is first come, first served. There’s only ONE Mt. Tam Legacy Wall, so don’t delay—order today!

Fairfax, California sits at the foot of Mount Tamalpais, which is widely regarded as the birthplace of mountain biking. Fairfax is at the heart of one of the most popular bicycling regions in the United States. The town is the jumping-off point for road and mountain bike rides to all points of the compass. Mount Tamalpais, the West Marin hills, the Pacific Coast and the shore roads and trails of San Francisco Bay offer some of the best riding in the world. Thousands of bicycle tourists from around the world stream through Fairfax. The town is on the official Pacific Coast bike route, and it is the gateway to Point Reyes National Seashore.



Our work is only possible because of your help. Anything you contribute will be greatly appreciated.
