This museum is much more fun than it truly ought to be. I know nothing about motorcycles - but I am in the museum field, and was so impressed by the curation and setup of the space. The architecture and flow if the building is just beautiful. The exhibits are extremely engaging - and they touch on culture, design, US History, and engineering in a way that will appeal to all kinds of audiences. While kids might be interested - I'd say that the educational materials are geared toward a more adult audience then you typically find. The mode of address assumes that museum-goers are generally intelligent people - and so you get a LOT of information, quickly delivered in a very visual way. Highlights for me were an exhibition on the evolution of the leather jacket, and a hands on display which trains you to recognize the sound of the twin V-engine that is a staple of Harley. (I know that sounds like the weirdest thing - but you've got to try it.) The museum crowd was a mix of bikers in for the annual Labor Day rally - and tourists like me - and I loved the idea of touring a museum that was filled with experts in the field. I left feeling truly patriotic and somewhat sentimental about the Harley brand - so I suppose the museum did its trick!
