The Harley-Davidson Museum is celebrating summer in the city with a new tour developed in partnership with Milwaukee Food & City Tours®. The Milwaukee Legends Tour: Bikes Brats & Beer will be offered Thursdays and Sundays from May 21 to Sept. 6. “Whether a first-time visitor to the city, or a seasoned Milwaukee resident looking for a unique experience, tour participants are sure to learn something new about local history and culture, and have a lot of fun along the way,” said Bill Davidson, vice president of the Harley-Davidson Museum.
Each three-and-a-half hour excursion kicks off with a guided tour of the Museum, highlighting Harley-Davidson’s journey from garage start-up to iconic global brand. Participants will then board a Museum bus and embark on a historical tour focused on Milwaukee’s legendary beer- and sausage-making heritage.

The tour includes two memorable stops where participants will experience some of the city’s iconic culinary offerings. Sampling includes authentic German brats and classic Wisconsin cheeses at Wisconsin Cheese Mart on Old World 3rd Street, and beer tastings during a Lakefront Brewery tour. The journey ends back at the Museum, with the option to experience Bike Night (5 to 9 p.m.) after Thursday tours.
