The Harley Davidson Museum may not open until July but tickets began selling Tuesday on-line. Dave Fantle of Visit Milwaukee says the long awaited landmark will be truly one of a kind as Milwaukee will be the only place people can come to experience a Harley Davidson museum.
Those who visit will notice the striking steel architecture which is representative of the company's core beliefs and roots. Fantle calls it "A true genuine tribute to American workmanship." Harley's website says "the Museum's exposed galvanized steel and glazed black brick create a bond all their own – honest, hardworking, and proud." The 20 acre site in the Menomenee Valley will have a restaurant, retail and event space.
The museum is expected to bring in an estimated 350 thousand visitors annually from around the world.
