Featured In the August 2020 issue of Roadracing World: Harley-Davidson Museum

        Harley-Davidson has a 110-plus-year history of producing motorcycles and promoting the two-wheel culture. It is one of the most recognizable brands in the world, but for most of that time, the company had kept its story and extensive archives largely to itself. That all changed in 2008 when The Motor Company opened the Harley-Davidson Museum, a purpose-built 150,000-sq. ft. multi-use facility on a 20-acre campus near downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

 

At the Harley-Davidson Museum near Milwaukee, a photo in the reception hall, sourced from a private collector, shows attendees at the 1919 Harley-Davidson dealer show wearing face masks due to the Spanish Flu pandemic.

          Not only did the museum bring the history of Harley-Davidson to life, it quickly became an attraction for motorcycle fans and tourists, drawing in an estimated 300,000 visitors annually…
