Motorcycle enthusiasts headed to Wisconsin on July 12th & 13th for the grand opening of the latest Harley-Davidson venture--the Harley-Davidson Museum. Hosting exhibits and events that celebrate the people, products, culture and history that have made Harley-Davidson the icon it is today, the museum will give any Harley addict his fix.
Located on 20 acres in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the museum grounds are also home to a restaurant, cafe, retail store and indoor/outdoor event spaces. You can opt to tour the place on your own or pay $5 for an audio tour that's offered in various languages. During this self-guided tour option you'll hear the voices of our riders, heroes, and experts from the past and present.
Harley folks are famous for knowing how to party and Harley-Davidson has been known to throw a little shindig or two themselves. This spirit of celebration and camaraderie is plain to see when you host your next gathering at the Harley-Davidson Museum (weddings, trade shows, fundraisers & motorcycle ralies to name a few).
While buying a Harley might cost you a pretty penny, getting into the museum will cost you under 20 bucks. If you don't live anywhere near Milwaukee, and don't see yourself going anytime soon, you can still get a chance to survey the museum through the online virtual tour, which features exhibits and photos.
