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.

I was lucky enough to have a tour of the Harley- Davidson Museum! Even if you are not a motorcycle enthusiast, I can't say enough about the museum and it's history!

Very nice place to visit! So much information and beautifully curated displays! The restaurant had great food and drinks, too! The gift shop was "meh". There wasn't much more than what is already offered in most dealerships; overpriced stuff that's NOT made in America.
