Owner description: 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.

“Hog heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Worth the long walk. Truly just in hog heaven. The history of the machines was interesting, but the best was viewing examples of the models over the year. Having a room dedicated to allowing the visitors sit and or touch the models - great!!

“Nice display of a piece of American history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The museum is beautifully done with a lot of interactive exhibits and a ton of information about the company that really is an American icon. And ad the end, you get to sit on a wide selection of Harleys. And not just old beat up bikes that millions have sat on, and where all the switches have broken off. Brand new ones - there were even a couple 2013 models there.

“For motorcycle enthusiasts, but something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We had a fun time at the museum, but it is really for motorcycle enthusiasts. Still the displays are excellent and having a chance to sit on some different motorcycles was fun for everyone. The price is a bit steep for families.
