Harley-Davidson Museum will officially open the public at 10 am on Saturday, July 12, 2008. In addition to the museum itself visitors will be able to enjoy opening day features like tattoo artists and live music. The governor of Wisconsin, James Doyle, is scheduled to appear for the opening ceremony. Another feature of the day will be Harley-Davidson CEO Jim Ziemer receiving his very first tattoo to commemorate the occasion. I wonder if having a Harley-Davidson tattoo will hurt his future employment prospects?
If you’re going to Harley-Davidson Museum grand opening event, it is recommended that you buy your tickets in advance. I suspect it will be quite crowded but it should be a lot of fun for those who’re able to attend.
The Harley-Davidson Museum features a collection of over 400 motorcycles. Some of these bikes include ones owned by Elvis and Evel Knievel. Another interesting motorcycle on display is the first official Harley-Davidson motorcycle ever built. The museum will also feature interactive displays such as a virtual motorcycle ride. Museum officials anticipate 350,000 visitors a year will come to the museum. For more information, check out their web site: Harley-Davidson Museum.
