Ive stumbled across a few bike museums, but I can't always recall where they are.
There is a great one in Lincoln (Lincolnshire, UK), with lots of early Brit bikes.
In S.W France there is one attached to a chapel dedicated to cycling.
see http://home-1.tiscali.nl/~edwinsel/misc_religie.htm for location.
Any other hidden gems?

Go to this page (http://www.geocities.com/brantclements/links.htm) and scroll down to the section "Museums, Antiques, History" I've got a few good links there.
The French chapel you mention is probably at Ghisallo. The Madonna of Ghisallo is the patron saint of cyclists.
EditL *OOPS! I'm a chowderhead. Ghisallo is in Italy!*

and while this is not a museum (http://www.daytoncyclingclub.org/wright_flight.htm) its going to tour all of the Wright Bros-related cycling and avation related historical sites (including museums) in the area before departing for Kitty Hawk Nc.
