The Harley-Davidson Museum, 400 W. Canal St., is full of interesting things: not only amazing motorcycles, but also vintage photographs, memorabilia, clothing and more. And you don’t have to be a pig demon to enjoy it. The gift shop there is also amazing.
Likewise, Harley-Davidson is so steeped in Milwaukee history and culture that you don’t have to ride to proudly wear HD gear.
As the holidays quickly approach, zoom in on the museum shop to find an array of Harley-Davidson gear unlike what you’ll find elsewhere and at all prices. Best of all, the museum shop is full of equipment unique to the museum, some of which are inspired by original vintage Harley-Davidson clothing on display in the galleries.
The museum shop also offers free gift wrapping to make the journey even more enjoyable.
