  • This is a must-stop if you are in Milwaukee for any reason. It's truly an amazing museum. As a century-old company, Harley has a rich history from its first motorcycle to providing support in the Worl...  read more »

  • Was here for a corporate event and am not really a motorcycle person, but was blown away by the museum. The history was incredible, the role that Harleys played for the military was something I had no...  read more »
  • My husband and I are planning on going to Milwaukee for our anniversary in August. I called HD Museum to ask about tours and if I could make reservations with her she told me to go online. So I did but it gave me error messages. So when I called back the next day (Tuesday) I talked with a gentleman and explained the error message and he told me he would do the order over phone. When he put the tours in it gave him an error message. He told me he would get back with me. I never heard from him so I called back on Thursday and was informed the tour is full now!!!! Thanks for all the help!!!!! NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!!!!!!
  • The Best place to see how Milwaukee Harley-Davidson became world famous in the 1940's. Amazing museum. A must see for any one. Great out door statues. Pokemon 5 stops and a gym that is easy to take over.. for your youngsters you bring along on the tour.
  • I have a service dog and the harley davidson website clearly stated that service dogs are allowed in, but when i got to the door of the museum the man at the gate asked me about my condition and the reason for the dog, i told him it was a therapy dog, he immediatly took me out of the line and called a manager. She brought out a document from The ADA where it says that thereapy dogs are not really a service dog. I had been in all the tours that Milwaukee offers and this is the only place where the put me to the side in front of all those people and started asking about my condition. I was very embarrased and felt discriminated so i write this to let anyone know who has a service dog (therapy) not to go there and also to let Harley Davidson know that you should be more specific on your website. Horrible and embarrasing experience that could have been avoided.
  • Love this place! Only reason it did not get 5 stars is because once you see the museum, it's always the same. They do have bike nights and the restaurant is worth it though.
  • A great Milwaukee attraction whether you are a Harley owner or just a fan! You can easily spend a few hours to a half day at this museum. The history here is unbelievable and a must see. I highly recommend for any age but small children may get bored. Bring the family and enjoy the museum and then spend the night at the neighboring Iron Horse Hotel.
