The Harley-Davidson Museum exhibits cover the more than 100-year history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The museum’s complex contains more than 450 motorcycles and hundreds of thousands of artifacts from the Harley-Davidson Motor Company’s history.

The museum opened in 2008, in a historically industrial area of Milwaukee. In 2006, the groundbreaking ceremony included a burnout celebration using a Harley-Davidson XL883R Sportster, instead of with the traditional golden shovel.

The museum’s galleries displays are based on historic Harley-Davidson items that tell the company’s story and history, using motorcycles, photographs, posters, advertisements, clothes, trophies, video footage of motorcycling, and interactive exhibits.

The Harley-Davidson Motor Company’s corporate archives are also housed on the museum’s grounds.
