The 1890s saw an unprecedented surge in the popularity of bicycles, and Connecticut – thanks to entrepreneur Albert Pope and the Hartford-based Pope Manufacturing Company – was a leader in bicycle production. The Bicycle Game explores this moment in history in an interactive and playful exhibition designed for visitors of all ages, in groups or on their own. In the galleries, visitors will find the history of the bicycle transformed by an angry villain into a series of games and puzzles that must be solved. From trivia to bicycle racing to Chutes and Ladders, visitors will need to rely on a host of skills to make their way through the game and preserve this important moment in Connecticut history. Visit The Bicycle Game and take history for a ride!
