  • Wow! The museum is AMAZING! We paid extra for the "behind the scenes" tour, & it was well worth it. Everyone there was very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. It was my first visit, going with my wife, her cousin's daughter & her husband from Germany. I went because he is a Harley owner & wanted to see the museum. We are so glad we went for the visit. The exhibits are all very well done & documented, making it easy to follow. We are definitely going back! Don't miss a trip to this attraction!
  • The museum was very informative and the behind the scenes tour was the best part. If you are a huge Harley rider it is absolutely worth the stop. The food at the MOTOR restaurant is top notch as well. Went along on trip to support hubby but am now a Harley rider for life. Great place to visit.
