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.

“It was on my bucket list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

I enjoyed visiting the museum very much. I do own a Harley so I loved walking around and seeing the bikes and apparel from different eras. The price of admission was reasonable. It took us quite a while to see everything. The restaurant was nice and the food tasty. If you are in Milwaukee and are enthusiastic about Harley Davidson motorcycles, I would definitely recommend you stop by and check it out!

“A Very Neat Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I was working a meeting held at the property and the client gave us free tickets to the musuem. So we ventured to check it out. And I am glad we did. This place is so neat and full of history. Hundred of Harleys throughout the ages and the story of how the company grew.
Stop in here and see a part of American history.

The meeting space was good too with a very accommodating staff.

My wife's company had their christmas party at the HD Museum. The room and food was nice. The facility as a whole was excellent. We toured the museum at our leisure, it was very interesting to all.

“Expensive and small”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Although this place would be very interesting for someone very interested in the History of Harley Davidson, it wasn't for us, and the Museum was very small and quite pricey.
