In a recent article, we discussed the fantastic Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Tour and why you should join us on the 2018 tour.
As part of this tour, you get the chance to explore the famous Harley-Davidson Museum. To get you in the mood, here are four highlights that can't be missed!
Serial Number One
Let's face it, most people come to the museum for one reason – to see the collection of Harley-Davidson dating back to the early 20th century. This collection showcases more than 450 motorcycles, memorabilia and artifacts from the iconic brand, each with its own story and special place in Harley-Davidson's history.
Perhaps the most famous is the dubbed 'Serial Number One', the oldest known Harley-Davidson motorcycle which dates back to 1903. Constructed in a wooden shed in Milwaukee, Serial Number One represents the start of the Harley-Davidson journey.
Behind the scenes tour
If you're really passionate about the history of Harley-Davidson or just want to know more about the brand, you could also sign up for the behind the scenes tour. Running only on Wednesdays and Fridays, you can gain access to the normally restricted areas of the Harley-Davidson archives.
The behind the scenes tour also offers in-depth explanations of the museum's exhibits – giving you a wealth of fun facts and statistics to share with people at Sturgis Bike Week!
MOTOR Bar & Restaurant
Keen for a little break from all the Harley-Davidsons? The museum has a special bar and restaurant area that features some of the most popular American classics. Sink your teeth into a selection of appetisers including brisket nachos, wings and burgers.
Our pick would be the fish fries, a favourite of the Harley-Davidson founders William A. Davidson and William S. Harley back in the 1920s!
After wandering around the 20-acre museum and seeing all the sights, the experience is over, right? Wrong! Make sure to visit The Shop, where you can purchase a special souvenir to take home with you.
The Shop stocks everything from Harley-Davidson brand clothing and accessories to noteworthy art and special collectibles.
