Description: Harley-Davidson motorcycles bring heart-thumping adventure, life-changing...
Harley-Davidson motorcycles bring heart-thumping adventure, life-changing freedom and a bit of rebellion into the lives of people around the world. But whether you were born to be wild - or mild - makes no difference at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Much more than a nostalgia trip for motorcycle enthusiasts, the Museum offers a glimpse of American history and culture like you've never seen before - through the successes and trials of an iconic American company. Interactive, eye-catching exhibits present an unparalleled collection of legendary stories of our nation's last century. Located on 20 acres in downtown Milwaukee, the Museum offers free parking, Motor Bary & Restaurant, Cafe Racer, The Shop, park-like outdoor spaces, special event rentals, guided tours for group of 15 or more, and Steel Toe Tours of the Powertrain Operations, home of the big-twin engine.

My son took his dad and myself there for Fathers day. It was quite amazing looking at all the old bikes and new technology. We were there for almost 2 hours, my only regret was we didn't get to spend enough time in the Willie Davidson building. We went on a Sunday and they closed at 6

good for kids and non-motorcycle enthusiasts. Lots to look and at to read. We loved sitting on the motorcycles and looking at the different styles over the years.

An excellent place to visit if your are a bike enthusiast and technology savvy. A large display of models and technological evolution. live production models and assembly displays are depicted in the museum. A place worth visiting. parking lots filled with Harley Bike owners. staff are very friendly and enthusiastic to assist. An overall good experience.

Fantastic museum experience including the Willie G. Davidson exhibit. Great American story about a group of individuals taking back their business from a conglomerate and making it successful. Bikes on display were varied and creatively shown. Hands on items were fun. We visited on a Sunday and many of the visitors were Harley riders judging from the number of bikes... More

For the Harley enthusiast. They have it all from the beginning of their history, and what a story it is.

Very interesting viewing of the history of the Motor company and it's products. I especially liked the exhibit on the design process. The one that surprised me most was the Photo Op exhibit, which was different motorcycles that were set up to take pictures on, but most people didn't realize that the exhibit would actually take a picture for you.
