  • Anyone who is a motorcycle enthusiast or a classic movie buff will enjoy the Harley Museum. Well laid out and fun setting.

  • Lots of well preserved items to look at. Spent around 2hs there good easily spent 4 or more if I wanted to check everything out. I'm not a big Harley fan but I still enjoyed this museum. Picked a week day around 11am and not many people going through. I would say this is a must checkout spot if you are visiting Milwaukee. The prices are reasonable at $22.00 per adult per day and all staff encountered were friendly and attentive.
  • Museum part was great, enjoyed seeing the history of Harley-Davidson. However I can’t give a 5 star due to the fact that they were not letting people into the gift shop as early as 5-10 minutes before closing. First off, it’s not 5 yet so you’re still open, second it’s TERRIBLE business to have your gift shop close at the same time as the museum. Almost any other gift shop remains open well after the museum portion. Staff was not polite about saying it was close either.
