  • Best place ever!!!!. First class operation, customer service was top notch. Restaurant on campus was outstanding. Specially events posted by the museum are outstanding. We saw the Milwaukee philharmonic playing while videos of motorcycle mayhem played in a background outstanding show. If you have never gone to the museum best recommended stop, and must see.
  • My wife our son and daughter had so much fun here. These motorcycles were so much history under one roof. It was definitely a great experience to walk those halls and see our history. Wisconsin strong my brothers and sisters, take life one ride at a time. The area of the museum where kids can try on clothes and pose, my daughter had a blast. We were over taken with smiles laughs and extreme Awe and the motorcycle.
