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. « less

I have never been on a motorbike in my life, but my husband couldn't get me off the static beauties that are available for photo opportunities at the end of the tour! Loved the custom-built monsters covered in fringes, sequins, rhinestones etc. and great to see the bike that Arnie rode in Terminator II. Modern-day stuff apart, it was fascinating... More

We visited the Harley Davidson Museum and did the Steel Toe tour of the power plant. Both were very interesting. We ate at the restaurant and the food was very good....the waffle sundae was out of this world. We had an old picture with us of a great grandfather and it had the Harley building in the background from years... More

I am not a motorcycle enthusiast but my husband is so we stopped at the Museum. It was very nice, clean and well organized. I enjoyed it a lot even though I am not into motorcycles. It was nice to read and learn about the history and how the Harley has evolved over the years. Tons and tons of bikes.... More

Oh yea. This was super and a great tribute to HD. Also had a great restaurant with the best salad I ever ate! Displays were neat and the other travelers with or without bikes were great! An American must!

We enjoyed the museum, the history of the motorcycle, and all exhibits. It was a short walk from our hotel, the Iron Horse.

I am not a motorcycle fan but it was a lot of fun. We went here before going to Miller park and it was very cool. If you are in the area be sure to visit.

Although I am not a motorcycle person, I really enjoyed seeing the older mototcycles used for various other services, especially during WWII. They had some hands on displays, which were fun, and the museum was very interesting.

Always been into bikes, never seen anything like this. Lots of history, and just plain coolness, will be going back soon to revisit this amazing u.s. landmark. Food was great, more pricey than I expected, but hey, vacation.
