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.

A must stop at place when visiting Milwaukee. The history behind Harley-Davidson is very interesting. I am not a motorcycle fan, but I loved this place! There are a couple of restaurants on the grounds. They are both fabulous!

What a great place to visit and see some of the oldest motorcycles in America in wonderful condition. You really need to spend the whole day here and it may pay to book if you are going to do the tour of the factory.

I would rent a bus to the museum, and I would call ahead to get a group rate, i'm sure they offer one. There is free parking at the venue.
