Owner description: 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.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I went there with my family.
Nobody in my family drives a motorcycle.

But after the tour / visit - I could see it happen.
The place is very nicely layer out.
We enjoyed the savager hunt. The kids were all very engaged.

Thanks H-D!!

“For motorcycle lovers and novices alike.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have visited the museum twice, both times with family visiting Milwaukee. The architecture of the museum buildings and landscaping is very well done. It feels modern, industrial, and in the vibe of the Harley Davidson brand. The exhibits are interactive, and they do a great job of balancing a history lesson with motorcycle eye candy. One of my favorite parts is the exhibit where you can hear sound clips of their signature Harley Davidson engines.
This is a great visit for both kids and adults, motorcycle enthusiasts and curious visitors.

“HOG Wild”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

For biker fans, this is the place to see. Great history info. From the beginning of the company, WWI & WWII, police bikes, speedy delivery machines, bikes from every year, specialty bikes & designs, everything you'd live to see & experience. Plus two restaurants, gift shop, &. Great view. Our 2nd time here & plan on returning in the summer to enjoy the outdoor settings too. Love it!

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Amazing collection of Harleys, from the very first one, very entertaining. Tuesdays for $10 dollars, a great plan. The audiotour was not really worth it.
