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.

If you have never been to the Harley-Davidson Museum, what are you waiting for? It is so well done even if you aren't a died in the wool Harley guy you will still enjoy all the history they share. And all the bikes in their collection is outrageously huge and very cool.

Took a ride from Central Illinois up north to visit the Harley-Davidson Museum stopping at dealerships along the way to collect the poker chips as I stopped. Got up there late afternoon at the museum. Went inside to see how late they was open to see if I had time to go to their restaurant to eat lunch since I... More

I'm not a motorcycle fan but my husband is. I must say I was impressed with the museum, the layout, the incredible collection of Harley's in mint condition plus other things like advertising, customization, historical artifacts, and more. They have an amazing store with clothing items, insignia, pins, purses, etc. everyone will enjoy it whether Harley fans or not. Pricing... More

in the early 1900's, Harley and Davidson decided to keep ONE of every bike they produced. they are all here at this cool facility. Even if you dont have a bike, you should go. if you like shiny objects, you should go. if you like history, you should go. if you like design, you should go. you get the point.... More

The museum is really well laid out. It starts with the early through modern history, and the second half is focused on Harley culture. Make sure to visit the workshop and you must try the real Harley's out front.

Amassing restoration of bikes from the very beginning and a lot of rarities on display. It is even possible to see the workshop for restauration and all the bikes in store, waiting to be brought back to life. Also... More

This is a museum that's alive. People still ride these bikes and enjoy seeing the predecessors of their rides. It's history, art and just a little steam punk.

We converged on the museum from three different directions. One from Chicago, one from Madison and one from Ripon. It may seem like an odd choice for girls weekend out, but we had reservations at The Iron Horse [Fantastic boutique hotel in the 3rd Ward] - and what better way to kick it off than the Harley Museum? If you... More
