Overview

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.

Great experience and amazing collection of pieces from the over 100 year history of the company. You get to sit on the motorcycles at the end of the tour.

Truly a history of the Harley! Beautiful displays and nice interactive areas. We opted to add the audio tour which did add to the experience but I believe you'd have an equally fulfilling experience just viewing and reading.

We went through the Harley Davidson Museum. Normal admission is $20.00. We went on a Tuesday and admission is only $10.00! There are ALOT of Harley's, old and new! Was quite interesting to see all of them.

An interesting and educational trip to the Harley museum. Not a biker myself but still found it interesting and informative. Worth a visit for an afternoon.

I would say no to both. Two hours is not enough time and get a locker at the airport and leave it there.

Not 100% sure of the question, but they do have a decent sized Harley gift shop about 300 feet away from the museum.
