Harley-Davidson motorcycles bring heart-thumping adventure...

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.

Very cool place to see, thy offer audio tours which I recommend if you're all in, But if you're just browsing there's plenty of cool motorcycles to see and so much history to read on the walls and throughout the exhibits.

We visited the museum a few times and the collection is amazing. Some of the Harley's are beautiful to me. We even got to make our own bike on a computer. There's some hands on things to do. If your either in town visiting or you live here it's a must for everyone.

I don't own a Harley, nor do I really like motorcycles, but I really enjoyed this museum. The Harley guy in our group was blown away! The first thing I love about this museum is that they encourage you to take photos!! I love photography so I ran back to the car and grabbed my good camera. I had a... More

We are not fanatical motorcycle enthusiasts, but we appreciated the modernity and design of the Harley-Davidson Museum. We also appreciated the product's broad appeal. The museum does a wonderful job detailing the history of the company. The people are so friendly. And the gift shop, though expensive, rocks!

This was a nice museum and restaurant. My husband and I enjoyed our visit. Our boys (ages 6 & 8) got a little bored after 1.5 hours. But there really was plenty for them to do - i.e. Push buttons to listen to different types of engines, sit on motorcycles, color a picture, dress up in biker gear, watch an... More

Very interesting and impressive. The displays were excellent. My dad and brother ( non motorcycle guys ) found it very enjoyable too. A must see for any motorcycle enthusiast especially the Harley crowd. Check out the Iron Horse Hotel just down the road. Was a very cool place to stay.

Not a Harley rider but a biker. Loved the museum and all the history there. Awesome architecture, bar and gift shop. Two story with a lot of old bikes from all eras.

This is a museum unlike any other. Especially for a motorcycle enthusiast, particularly.... a Harley enthusiast. The tour is self guided & covers all aspects of the motor company's history. From the "garage" factory where the first Harley was conceived & built, to the sports they were involved in throughout the century +, to the culture they have spawned, to... More

I'm not a "Harley guy", but still enjoyed the tour. Well put together tour. Seemed a little expensive admission, but the collection was very expansive.

Even though it is big place there is not much to see there. It is interesting but not for 20.00 per person. Very small parking, it was hard to park. You have to drive in circle for a while and parking spots are all over the place.

Thank Niebieski
