Harley-Davidson motorcycles bring heart-thumping adventure, life-changing...

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.

My wife and I recently attended a re-union in Milwaukee and the group visited the H-D Museum. We had a friendly guide who took us from the very earliest bikes through the latest models. I haven't owned a motorcycle since college, but the history of H-D is closely tied to the history of the US during the 20th Century. As... More

The museum has many awesome bikes on display, they do have a self guided tour that lets you go at your own pace, the audio is very informative. Gift shop has a wide variety of new items with a vintage look. Will return to the museum on my next visit.

If the museum provided guided tours, the museum would have been enjoyable. I have no experience with motorcycles, but have admired and been intrigued by Harley people and culture. Since the Harley-Davidson Museum lacked the availability of a docent for the general public last Friday, I wished I had saved the hefty entrance fee by skipping the museum and just... More

Regardless, your experience was not up to our standards and expectations, so I would like to arrange for a refund and/or credit for a return visit with a... More

I am too chicken to drive a motorcycle, but Harley Davidson has been on our Board of Directors for years. I can't help admire the design, engineering, branding, artistry, and customization of these amazing motorcycles. You don't have to ride a Harley to have an amazing time at this museum.

It was my second time to visit the museum with friends we brought to Milwaukee. Admission is $20, and while maybe a little steep, you see and experience some fascinating history the motorcycles, their philosophy, their design and the ways they've been used over the past 100+ years: ice cream and Coke delivery; military police; motordrome racing, track racing and...

An unexpected pleasure. Beautiful displays of Harleys from year one to future designs. We'll captioned. Gas tank displays of every year. One of our favorites was the display where you press a button to hear all the different engine sounds.

A great museum detailing the history of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Very well organized. Even if you're not a motorcycle fan, this tour is well with it for local history alone. Loved it!
