Harley-Davidson Museum — File under 'Things to do in Milwaukee besides visit joe's birthplace'

Jjhj

It was called Mt. Sinai Hospital back then but I have no idea what it's called now, or if it's even still standing, I think on 12th Street near State.

But I digress.

The Harley-Davidson Museum opened its doors last Sunday, July 12 in the city of the bike's birthplace.

Andrew Blum, in his rave review in the August 2008 issue of Wired magazine, wrote, "... Pentagram, the chief design firm on the project, turned 20 acres of industrial land into hog heaven: The three buildings containing galleries, archives, and the obligatory store are arranged around an intersection of 60-foot-wide roads, broad enough for four rows of parking and two traffic lanes, just like at Sturgis — creating an ever-changing exhibit of visitors' bikes."

Bonus: On display is the original outlaw — Serial Number One (top).

Can't make it in person?

Take the virtual tour.
