The Harley-Davidson Museum design has been in development for more than a year and included extensive input from Milwaukee city officials. With an anticipated opening date of 2008, the 130,000 sq. ft. Museum development will feature exhibit space as well as a restaurant, cafe, retail shop, meeting space, special event facilities and the Harley-Davidson corporate archives.

Harley-Davidson also announced the Museum development partners. The lead design architect is Pentagram, New York, whose expertise includes architecture, graphic design and exhibit design. Other key members of the development team include Hammel, Green and Abrahamson, Milwaukee, local architect of record; Oslund and Associates, Minneapolis, landscape architecture; M.A. Mortenson Company, Milwaukee, construction management; and SIGMA, Milwaukee, environmental consultant.

Harley-Davidson plans to break ground for the Museum later in the first half of 2006. When completed, the Museum is expected to attract an estimated 350,000 visitors each year from around the world.

Guess, bikers and clubs are now going to have to pencil in on their calendars a ride to the new museum.
