About museum

The main activities of the museum are collecting motorcycle equipment, restoration, presentations to the public, and sightseeing.

At the moment, it is the largest specialized motorcycle museum in Russia. The collection holds more than 350 units of motor vehicles, many of which are unique and preserved in a single copy.

The museum presents all serial Soviet motorcycles from the 1930s, as well as motorcycles from Czechoslovakia, Germany, the United States, and other countries.

One of the halls presents Tula motorcycles and scooters produced at TulaMashZavod (TMZ), including experimental ones, and totals 51 units. This is the world’s only complete collection of Tula motorcycles.

The museum is private and founded by collector Leonid Pavlovich Zyakin. In 2015, he became a Laureate of the Government Prize in the field of tourism.
