Museum of Ural bikes in Irbit stay w/o building

Russian government museum of Ural bikes in Irbit city lost the building for their exhibition. The buildings they rent have been sold to the private person. New owner canceled rent contract. The last day to leave is 06.24.2013. They need to move 2/3 of displays to somewhere else. The local government refused to support the museum this moment.

I believe museum will find new building, but when it will be and where that is the question. That is what our newspapers say. Hope they do the elephant from the fly. But pity anyway.

What a shame...it was awesome when I visited it a few years ago.

The historical and enthusiast appeal will be lost if the whole collection isn`t all in one place.

And to me,the only place for it is in Irbit...home of the Ural.

As far as a lot of people know about it and talk a lot, probably the government will find a new building. Is spite of they promised to do it many times in the past and promised it again today.

This sounds like a must see for any Ural owner or history buff.

Bet I could spend a week in a place w/ such a history lesson sitting there.

Maybe they should consider bringing it to Ural West! I'm sure a bunch of us would want to make the pilgrimage to Washington state.
