The health and safety of our entire community is our primary focus during this unprecedented time. The following updates are precautionary measures we’re putting in place as we respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

The Museum Campus is Temporarily Closed 

As a public health precaution due to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), The Harley-Davidson Museum campus will temporarily close to the public, beginning Monday, March 16 and will reopen when it’s deemed safe for our guests and our staff. This includes the H-D Museum, MOTOR Bar & Restaurant and The Shop (gift shop). No tours, events or programs will be offered at this time. This decision was made with the health and safety of the Harley-Davidson Museum community being our top priority.

There have been no confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 among museum staff or visitors. We will continue to work with Milwaukee Health Department and Wisconsin Department of Health officials and will continue to follow their guidance.

We recognize that the situation is dynamic. Guests can rest assured that our staff is vigilant about keeping everyone who visits our campus safe as has been the case since we first opened. When the Harley-Davidson Museum reopens, we are confident that every measure will have been taken to provide a safe and welcoming experience for our staff and guests.

In an effort to stay connected with our guests, fans and enthusiasts, the Harley-Davidson Museum social media channels (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) are featuring fun stories and videos about the Museum collection and Harley-Davidson history.

The Harley-Davidson Museum will provide updates as they become available.

Stay safe,
Harley-Davidson Museum

How can I help?

It’s a testament to our community of riders and enthusiasts that the question we’re being asked most is, “How can I help?” You may have heard stories of how riders are delivering food and supplies to neighbors, or PPE to local hospitals on their motorbikes. If you’re healthy, able, and understand the risk involved, this is a way you can make a difference in your community.
