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.

Took the boyfriend for his birthday, he was happy as he could drool over the history. I was happy so I could use my camera. I thought it was pricey though for a bike museum, $20. Harley has its only city block down there. There is a large gift shop, a "garage", and then the museum. All of this is... More

Lots and lots of bikes, as you would expect. A good overview of the history of the company and its development, lots of interesting bikes to look at. Could be a bit more interactive for children/young people.

While staying in Chicago on a recent trip to America we decided to make the short drive to Milwaukee to visit the Harley Davidson museum and we are very glad we did. It has an excellent collection from the very earliest models through to the current day. If you are a bike lover then this is a must visit, and... More

You don't have to be a Harley lover or even a motor head to enjoy this. Very nice lay out, tremendous amount of very interesting history. I was nice to see the beginning thru today.

Self guided or group, there is a ton to see. A lot of history and amazing restorations as well as some beautiful bikes. Also, hit the Willie G. exhibit and had lunch at the restaurant on the grounds. Motorcycle enthusiast or not you will love the history of an American legend.

Visited the Harley museum in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Not a motorcycle enthusiast - but thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Motorcycles dating back to 1903 - and some newer tricked out bikes!

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.
