You don’t have to own or ride a Harley to appreciate this museum. The history of the motorcycle during the WW2 was particularly interesting. It is well worth your time to visit if you are in Milwaukee. Chuck out their concert schedule too!

I believe so. Went there early Sunday and parking lot was empty. They have marked places for motorcycles, close to museum entrance, but all the other parking is nearby, like 2-3min walk to main entrance.
