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.

The HD Museum is definitely a great way to see all the bike you wish you had in your garage! Not at all what I expected. Glad we had the opportunity to tour it!

We are driving a road king for quite a while now, being in Milwaukee, the birthplace of our motorcycle, a visit to this museum was high on the bucket list and it was very much worth our while. Go there, You won't be disappointed !

Being the Mom/Wife of a motor head family no trip to Milwaukee WI would be complete without a stop here. The front entry was decked out in holiday spirit so we posed for a family Christmas card. My oldest took the headphone tour, while the rest of us wandered around, amazed by the collection of bikes. All of the bikes... More

The museum is an interesting place for anyone who is a motor cycle fan and especially a Harley fan/user. Although the museum offers great historical info on the development and evolution of the Harley Davidson business and brand.

they have done such a great job of capturing history with a motorcycle. It is laid out very nicely, the bikes are labeled and you learn a lot about the company's history. I especially liked the wall of riders and the 'fancy' custom bikes. The bar is really nice with a lot of natural light and the gift shop has... More

We did the full tour and behind the scenes tour which were fantastic. Knowledgeable tour guides and a fascinating look at a true American original. Even if you are not a biker it is worth the time.
