    Good experience. Every vintage bike is here to view. Only disappointed there weren't may references to women in motorcycle / racing. Dot Robinson to name one. Women like to visit Museums too, would be nice to be represented.

    The museum is amazing, they have every bike in there and lots of history, plan at least 2 hours. Didn't do the audio tour so not sure if it would be worth the extra money or not, ate at the restaurant on site, a little pricey but excellent meal.

    Awesome experience. The campus is gorgeous. Tickets were very reasonably priced. The exhibits were very interesting. Could easily spend a whole day if you wanted.

    I am not a motorcycle enthusiast in any way but the Harley Museum was a great experience. Although Harley Davidson is a corporation, I never felt like I was being sold anything. Instead I got to see a piece of American history grow and develop over time. Highlights include: the oldest Harley, bikes from WW2, The terminator bike, and more.

    As a tourist I met a HOG for the first time... They're all so much of what you expect. Milwaukee has the Harley museum​ which is definitely a must see. It's a 20$ entry with an additional 4 bucks for the audio tour. Take it!?!
