Harley-Davidson Museum Traces the Evolution of Iconic Motorcycle's Design

The history of product design includes household items, furniture, cars and even motorcycles.

The Harley-Davidson Museum, located near downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, opened its doors to the public on Saturday, July 12, 2008. The 130,000-square-foot Museum adds a new dimension to the Harley-Davidson experience.

Visitors get a feel for the freedom, camaraderie and pride that Harley-Davidson riders experience every time they fire up their motorcycles. Inside the Harley-Davidson Museum are motorcycles and artifacts that tell the story of the Motor Company's history and heritage.

At the Harley-Davidson Museum you can:

Walk through exhibits that tell the stories of the extraordinary people, products, history and culture of Harley-Davidson. In addition to the fantastic motorcycle collection, stories are told through photographs, videos, apparel, rare documents and other artifacts.
Peek into a portion of the Archives never before open to the public, home to over 450 motorcycles and thousands of artifacts the Archives team pulls from for exhibits.
Read the personalized messages created by individuals worldwide on the Living the Legend rivets, found on the Living the Legend walls and plazas.
Stroll around the 20 acre Museum site, enjoy the riverwalk or just sit back along the waterfront taking in the Milwaukee skyline.
Check out the unique Museum-inspired items at The Shop.
Examine the industrial architecture and attention to detail found both inside and outside the Museum's three buildings.
