Harley-Davidson is an integral part of Milwaukee’s history. Really cool museum. Learn all about the company’s upbringing, roots, history and see the very first Harley ever produced. Tons of bikes... more »
My wife did not want to go to the museum, after convincing her we couldn't leave. I believe she enjoyed the history of Harley Davidson more than myself. Would love to go back again. more »
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.
