Motorcycle Museum of Finland

On Wednesday 28th we visited the Motorcycle Museum of Finland in Lahti. It is about 100 km from where we live. They opened it five years ago and that is for how long we have been talking about to go there.

There are, of course, mostly motorbikes and bike stuff but some other things also. I liked the old school desk with attached chairs. Just like those we had at school. Another thing was the jukebox in the restaurant. Loaded with old time music. The waitress said you are allowed two play it. No coins needed. Just press the buttons to select. To me it both looked and sounded exactly like the one which was in the bar we used to gather at as teenagers. So while having lunch we listened to my teenage favorites. Many of the pieces I still love to listen to. The baked potato with prawns and salad was good.

    LOL, again 😀 Isn’t it funny how often we have the same things in our minds. I hope you will be able to visit the museum in Lahti together with uncle and aunt one day. It’s quite beautifully situated on the shore of the Lake Vesijärvi. You can sit outside in the summer. have coffee or eat something.

    you know what, i think we have some connection in our minds. 😀 about 2 weeks ago i was just looking for motorcycle museum/place in Helsinki because my uncle & aunt are visiting (and the love riding motorcycles), and here you are with the answer! 😀 unfortunately it’s too far away and we don’t have a car, so we won’t go there this time, but thank you for the info!
    i would have loved to try the jukebox, and actually i also used that kind of school desk/chair at middle school/yläaste in my home country! (i went to an old private school, maybe that’s why….)
