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.

If you're a big fan of bikes and particularly of Harley Davidson, you can't miss it. Very organized you will be able to get to know Harley history, try a bike and shop for souvenirs.

I've visited the Harley Davidson museum 2 times and I would go back again, just because there is so much to see. Wheather you are a motorcycle enthusiasts or not you will enjoy this museum. It is an example of how in America a great idea and hard work can launch a great company. This museum is as much about... More

Our family was visiting Milwaukee for thanksgiving with friends and decided to check this out. I am not a rider, but love vehicles of all kinds. This museum has a great display and has so much rich history. There is an audio tour too. You don't feel rushed and can browse at your pace. We went on a Tuesday and... More

This is the go to place for Harley Davidson lovers if you are in the Milwaukee area. It was fascinating to see all the motorcycles from various eras and the history behind the brand.

I'm not into motorcycles but everyone kept saying how great it was so I went with my bf who has 2 Harley's. We did the basic tour no audio. Lots of bikes to look at which is neat. It's set up nice but I could've skipped for the $20 it cost.

We were disappointed, guess we just expected more things to do than reading articles and more bikes. It was really interesting to see all the different items other than motorcycles and their "evolution" and all the beautiful unrestored items. There were just several security people walking around, no one to ask questions. We did not want to wait for a... More

Wonderful museum and a must see if you are in Milwaukee! Fascinating look at the history of motorcycles, as well as the history of the U.S. I'm not a motorcycle fan but this was so interesting to learn how the motorcycles were made and to learn of the company 's beginnings and their ups and downs through the years. Fun... More
