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.

I am not really into motorcycles, but do like the history of it. We did the basic museum tour no audio. I thought layout of the bikes could have be laid out better. It zigzagged a little too much for me. It was nice to see, but I wouldn't go back.

This was the most awesome experience for someone who loves motorcycles. I wish I had had more time to explore. It holds all kinds of bikes, gear, memorabilia. I didn't get to go to the café. Just spectacular!

If you're a big fan of bikes and particularly of Harley Davidson, you can't miss it. Very organized you will be able to get to know Harley history, try a bike and shop for souvenirs.
