  • Visit to this museum was a trip to the history of motorbike industry in the US. It's amazing how Harley-Davidson started from a shade and established itself into the world as a leading motorbike company! The museum was well designed with very early stage to the modern day Harley-Davidson motorbikes. Paper clips, video clips, ads, and tailor-made Harley bikes showed how those bikes were used in almost every sector: from government agencies like USPS, US Army, police to bikers everywhere. I kind of felt an itch to get a Harley bike for myself after this visit!
  • Cool place to go even if you are not a bike fanatic. I personally think the cost was a bit much for how small the museum was ($22 per adult, $5 additional for audio tour). Part of it is under construction. You do get free parking however. Really interesting to see the development of the bike and the company. You will take 1 hour and 1/2 at most unless you plan to read everything.
