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.

Fortunate to have a tour of the museum as part of a group. Fabulous to see all the history of the company and the bikes! Excellent visit for both young and old. Would recommend at least 2 hours.

Thursday's you can stack a guided HD tour with a beer, cheese and brat tour, and bike night. Spent about 4 hours where and still had stuff to see. Lots of history. No bikes for sale.

Whether you ride a motorcycle or not, this place offers an insight to what made America great. These young men designed and developed America's motorbike. The history of an American dream comes to life in this museum, and illustrates how their ideas impacted American culture.

Quick stop off at the museum on our bike tour. Rent the headphones if you have time, we did not and so I feel that we missed out. Looking back at all the bikes over time is pretty neat. The food at the restaurant was...More

Super cool place to visit. The museum, the grounds, the gift shop and the restaurant. And even better to just sit outside and watch the bikes come and go.

Worth the price of admission, HOG Members are free. Beautiful building and laid out well. Good for both the HD Weekend warrior as well as the enthusiast. Plan to enjoy some lunch and a refreshment at the restaurant.
