Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Born To Be Marketed: Harley-Davidson Museum Opens
Harley-Davidson Museum: Considering the number of motorcycles on American highways -- and the number of tips we receive from people carefully posing their motorcycles in their photos -- it's surprising that America has lagged in offering a really good motorcycle-themed attraction.

Well worth the price of ticket, and easy to get to. Gift shop stays open 30 after museum closes. Great history on the motorcycle. They have Harleys from Terminator 2, Captain America and others from famous movies.

So fun to see the customized bikes. Be sure to get the audio tour. I was lucky enough to catch a VIP tour (and film crew!) with John Rich and the Davidson descendants.

Please note you DO NOT have to purchase tickets in advance as one of the earlier posts stated. Unfortunately I followed those "purchase in advance" instructions and paid $20. However, when I arrived, tickets were on sale for $10 for a $10 Tuesday Promotion -- so I was out $10. That being said, the museum was awesome and worth the $20. For an additional $4 you can get the audio tour as well.

Muffler Man Head in Museum

There is Muffler Man head on temporary display in the Harley Davidson Museum. It's a part of the museum's "The American Road" exhibit. I loaned it to them through September 1.
