I am not a motorcycle enthusiast, so I was somewhat hesitant to go to a museum devoted to the vehicle. I was very pleasantly surprised. While the museum is centered on the bikes, the presentation covers a much broader history than just bikes, and also...More

I got my tickets on line. When we arrived you go to a desk for check in and get a paper ticket. After that you go upstairs to the exhibits. We both really enjoyed the history of Harley-Davidson and the different bikes throughout the years....More

It’s a museum, so , if you don’t like museums, don’t go. It’s interesting because is the history of Harley Davidson. There are all kinds and models of Harley, of all the years, since its creation. I recommend.

If you are in Milwaukee, please stop and see this. They just celebrated 115 years and had a huge parade the week before we were there. Nice facility and lots of memorabilia. The place to buy HD items!

Extremely thorough and fascinating exhibits relating the history of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The museum displays motorcycles in a thoughtfully laid out chronological order of many of their motorcycles, from the beginning in 1903 up to the present.

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.
