MILWAUKEE (Dec. 1, 2016) – With more than 17,500 holiday lights brightening the winter nights, a lobby display that includes a jolly old elf and Breakfast with Santa on the menu at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant, the Harley-Davidson Museum® is in a festive mood this holiday season. The week between Christmas and the New Year always brings thousands of families to the Museum for a walk through Harley history, but with events and installations happening all month long, dashing to 6th & Canal is the gift that keeps on giving.


Breakfast with Santa
Dec. 4 and 11, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Bring the kids down to the Harley-Davidson Museum® for a special MOTOR breakfast with Santa. In this annual tradition, parents and children can snap a photo with Santa on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and decorate a motorcycle-shaped sugar cookie. Plated children’s breakfast includes the perfect portion for little ones, five silver dollar-sized buttermilk pancakes, scrambled eggs and crispy hickory-smoked bacon. $14.95 per child (12 and younger). Space for the event is limited and reservations are required. Call 414-287-2778 to make a reservation.

Holiday Bike Night
Dec. 15, 5-9 p.m.
Come on down to Motor Bar & Restaurant for a very merry Harley-Davidson holiday. To celebrate the season, attendees will receive a free Harley-Davidson ornament, while supplies last. In addition to the MOTOR food & drink specials you’ve come to love, The Ryan McGrath Band brings its blues-rock-country twang to the party for a foot-stomping good time. And everyone can enjoy $2 Miller Lite with your MOTOR Bike Night koozie, no matter if you’ve been naughty or nice. Our Bike Night raffle means a few lucky folks will be decking their halls with some fresh new Harley-Davidson merchandise.

Plus, The Shop at the Harley-Davidson Museum will stay open late to offer exclusive deals – like free gift wrapping – for everyone at Bike Night. If you still have a few folks to check off your list, tonight is your chance to shop till you drop at our Holiday Bike Night.


Wheels by Harley-Davidson
Visitors to the Museum this holiday season are in for a never-before-seen treat: a 1960 Model BT Super-10 in its first-ever display – with Santa in the saddle. The throwback single-cylinder two-cycle bike was marketed to the “young and young at heart.” This 1960 model, part of the Harley-Davidson Archives collection, has only three miles on its odometer.

Milwaukee-Eight™ Engine Display
More than a century of refinement has produced a procession of iconic 45-degree Harley-Davidson V-Twins. Renowned for their unique look, sound, and for the feel they create as the rider goes down the road, these engines are the heart and soul of our motorcycles. A major redesign of the large-displacement Big Twin engines that power Harley-Davidson cruiser and touring bikes is a rare occurrence. Past designs—the Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead— have taken on legendary status. The next chapter in this story, the Milwaukee-Eight, was introduced for the 2017 model year. While retaining the defining features of the classic Harley V-Twin, it introduces substantial improvements for the 21st-century rider. Now on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum, the first ever Milwaukee-Eight to roll of the assembly line has come home.

$10 Tuesdays are back!
Don’t forget: Museum admission on Tuesdays from October through April is just $10, no reservation required.

MOTOR Bar & Restaurant
The team at MOTOR Bar & Restaurant has been cooking up some outstanding dishes for December. MOTOR’s monthly specials will get your mouth watering: Spinach Artichoke dip is a gooey combination of three cheeses, fresh spinach and artichokes served alongside tortilla chips and house-made crostini. Sticky Garlic Ginger Wings pack an Asian-influenced sauce with just a hint of heat. The Patty Melt melds a hand-packed patty, Swiss cheese, fried onions, lettuce, tomato and MOTOR’s house-made Russian dressing on marble rye for a hearty taste of Americana. And for a cup of good cheer, try the Grand Amaretto Express, a blend of Grand Marnier® and Amaretto.
