Harley-Davidson Museum Reopening

The Harley-Davidson Museum Reopens March 5!
Make plans to visit.

With a new exhibit and new ways to explore – including the all-new Annual Pass – the Harley-Davidson Museum is looking forward to welcoming guests safely back to campus, beginning Friday, March 5th.

“Our team has been eager to welcome our friends and neighbors – safely – back to our campus,” said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum. “With robust health and safety plans in place, we’re confident our guests can comfortably enjoy a visit to our new exhibit, “Off-Road Harley-Davidson,” a bite at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant or a visit to The Shop for great gifts and collectibles. Together, with our partners across the city, we have been diligently working to make sure we do our part to keep Milwaukee moving in the right direction.”

This is the first step of phased reopening, and City of Milwaukee health officials have approved safety plans for the H-D Museum. Reinforced protocols to support healthy and safe environments for visitors and staff include enhanced cleaning procedures, hand sanitizing stations and online ticketing to ensure social distancing and limiting of capacity levels. Staff and visitors will be required to wear face coverings at all times. Learn more about protocols to support healthy and safe environments.

EXHIBITS
“Off-Road Harley-Davidson” (open now)
In the decades before America paved its highways, early riders had to be prepared for all sorts of terrain: sand, clay or dirt – and wandering those makeshift byways were Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Today, it’s called off-road or adventure touring; back then it was just called riding. Since 1903, Harley-Davidson motorcycles proved their toughness by riding over wooded hills, through stone-choked creek beds and up mountain sides. “Off-road Harley-Davidson” tells the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who rode them and the adventures they shared.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (open now)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.
“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”

NBA Finals 2020 Viewership Drops 50%

The sports world is one of the most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with many major sports all over the world coming to a complete halt. Even after many leagues returned it was clear that the “new normal” will have a significant effect on the entire sports world. With the pandemic throwing many sporting calendars and seasons in chaos, the makeshift calendars proved detrimental to viewership numbers. According to data presented by Safe Betting Sites, the 2020 NBA Finals recorded a 50% drop in viewership compared to the 2019 Finals.

COVID-19 Positive Tests  Suspended NBA Season “Until Further Notice”

On March 11, 2020, The Utah Jazz were scheduled to play the Oklahoma City Thunder despite the threat of COVID-19 already rising in other parts of the world. This was until The Jazz’s star centre Rudy Gobert of France tested positive for the virus. This prompted the league to cancel the game merely minutes from tip-off. The league subsequently suspended the remainder of the 2019-2020 season until further notice. In June it was then announced that the season will be restarted on July 31st with an improvised schedule taking in consideration teams current position on the standings when play was suspended. It was agreed that seeding games would be played for all teams that finished within six games of a playoff spot when play was halted.

Season Restarted Under “Bubble Conditions”

As part of the plans for a restart, the NBA instituted a strict medical protocol leading up to the restart as well as during the entire playoffs were played. The games were played in controlled venues within Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida which was popularly referred to as “the bubble.” The entire playoffs were played in the bubble with no physical fans in attendance. Many players likened the experience to their days as AAU players before their NBA careers.

The 2020 NBA Finals pitted the Eastern Conference Champions Miami Heat against the Western Conference Champions, LA Lakers. The finals are traditionally played sometime in June but the pandemic forced an almost 4-month delay with Game 1 played on September 30. This delay, as well as the unique atmosphere the bubble brought, were a clear contributor to the significant decline in viewership numbers.

Tumultuous Time In US History Leads To  Decrease In Ratings

The 2020 NBA finals saw an average viewership of 7.5 million viewers. This is a 51% drop compared to the 2019 Finals which recorded an average of 15.14 million viewers. It is also the lowest number of average viewers of any Finals in the last two decades. Expectedly, the 2020 Finals also saw the lowest TV ratings in the last two decades with a rating of 4 compared to 8.8 in 2019.

At around the time of the improvised Playoffs, the US  was going through a tumultuous time in its history in several aspects that also contributed to the decrease in viewers. The COVID-19 pandemic was still ravaging through several states which completely altered many people’s daily routine. The pandemic also meant that sports bars and other venues such as casinos were unavailable and thus the Finals reached far fewer people than in previous years.

The delay in the playoffs also meant that the Finals were staged closer to the critical November 2020 US Presidential elections which meant that people’s focus was dramatically shifted. This combined with the pandemic meant more people were tuning in to news programs rather than sporting events.

Significantly, before and during the NBA’s restart the Black Lives Matter movement was also in full swing as cities around the US protested the infamous death of George Floyd in the hands of police. Another shooting of an African-American man in the city of Milwaukee prompted the Milwaukee Bucks to boycott their playoff game against the Orlando Magic and refused to take to the court. After discussions were held NBA players agreed to play on deciding instead to use their platform to bring awareness to social justice causes. This included wearing NBA jerseys with social justice messages chosen by the player. While the move was commended by many, the polarizing nature of the issue meant that the NBA inevitably lost some viewers who had opposing views.

New Exhibits at Harley-Davidson Museum

Two new special exhibits premiere at the Harley-Davidson Museum 
Plus, celebrate the season with a special Holiday Weekend Sale, the H-D Museum shows its appreciation to those who served with free admission to Veterans* on Veterans on Veterans Day and special gallery talks focused on H-D’s long history with the U.S. military.

Art, engineering and the timeless pursuit of adventure are always on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum. And beginning this month, two new special exhibits bring those elements to the fore.

“Off-Road Harley-Davidson” opens to the public Nov. 1 and tells the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who rode them and the adventures they shared. Dating back to the Motor Company’s earliest days and shining a spotlight on what the all-new, all-electric LiveWire® motorcycle is capable of, this exhibit is sure to thrill those who prefer the road less traveled. “Performance Builds from Born-Free” brings together four customized Harley-Davidson® motorcycles where imagination and ingenuity take center stage.

And in what has become an annual tradition of expressing gratitude for those who serve and those who have served, the Veterans Day 2020 appreciation includes free admission to the H-D Museum on Nov 11 and 12.

Finally, be sure to check out the H-D Museum’s Holiday Weekend Sale and score on your favorite H-D branded gear. Give as a gift or add to your wardrobe!

MUST-SEE EXHIBITS
“Off-Road Harley-Davidson”
Opening Nov. 21, 2020; Media Preview: Friday, Nov. 20
In the decades before America paved its highways, early riders had to be prepared for all sorts of terrain: sand, clay or dirt – and wandering those makeshift byways were Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Today, it’s called off-road or adventure touring; back then it was just called riding. Since 1903, Harley-Davidson motorcycles proved their toughness by riding over wooded hills, through stone-choked creek beds and up mountain sides. “Off-Road Harley-Davidson” tells the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who rode them, and the adventures they shared. Stay tuned to the H-D Museum social channels for a behind-the-scenes look at this exhibit.

“Performance Builds from Born-Free”
The Born-Free Motorcycle Show has been bringing together intrepid builders for more than a decade. The H-D Museum is pleased to display the passion projects of four top-notch Born-Free wrenchers whose canvas is a stock Harley- Davidson® motorcycle. Now on display in the Engine Room.

Stevan Dohanos painting, “Tex’s Motorcycle”
Dohanos, a frequent contributor to the Saturday Evening Post, enjoyed capturing his subjects as they were in real life. For this piece, Dohanos found his muse on a street in Georgetown, Conn. “Tex” Keller had decorated his saddle bags with nickel spots and covered his saddle with fur, putting his own flair on the Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Though Dohanos probably didn’t title the work, many motorcyclists now refer to it as “Tex’s Motorcycle” and prints of it can be found in shops across the country. The original has found a home at the H-D Museum.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory”

A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth.

Harley-Davidson Museum

The Harley-Davidson Museum is celebrating October with more than just its one-of-a-kind collection of motorcycles and memorabilia, as Milwaukee’s own musicians and artists will be on-campus to provide extra entertainment.

De La Buena, Lex Allen and Trapper Schoepp will take the stage Oct. 11 as part of a Rock the Green event. Tickets cost $10 and benefit Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts, Danceworks and Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.

Artists are also invited to participate in “Drawing in the H-D Museum” as part of Gallery Night and Day. Philip Salamone will take participants through the creative process in the event which will take place Oct. 16.

New all-electric LiveWire motorcycles will be available for demo rides Oct. 17 and 18. In promotion of the new Apple TV+ series “Long Way Up,” everyone who rides one of the motorcycles will receive a limited-edition LiveWire poster.

While guests are welcomed back to the museum, the first priority is safety. To see how the Harley-Davidson Museum is protecting guests, you can click right here.

They also have a few must-see exhibits available for only a little while longer.

Taming the Road in Style shows Harley-Davidson from the beginning. At a time in which motorcycles were nothing more than chunks of dirt, stone and other debris, designers struggled to build a comfortable bike. Many improvements to suspension, seats and frames later, Harley-Davidsons looked nothing like they did at their inception. Taming the Road in Style traces the history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles all the way until the most modern models. This exhibit closes Nov. 8.

“Tex’s Motorcycle” is a painting by Stevan Dohanos, who frequently contributed to the “Saturday Evening Post.” On the streets of Georgetown, Conn. was “Tex” Keller’s personalized motorcycle. He used nickel spots to decorate his saddle bag and put fur on his saddle. While prints of the painting are available all over the country, the original can only be seen at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” is a collection of architectural drawings, including plans for the original facility on Juneau Avenue. Pencil drawings and archival photos show how Harley-Davidson grew from producing 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to 27,000 in 1920. The Milwaukee factory continued to expand and is still the home of Harley-Davidson 100 years later.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon” shows Harley-Davidson in the middle of the period during which Milwaukee was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.” The Harley-Davidson Museum social channels will be providing behind-the-scenes looks at this exhibit.

They also offer tours. Engines 101 is a class taking visitors inside the engine. How does a powertrain work, and what’s so special about the 4-stroke engine? It’s all available to learn in a classroom setting. Ticket are available right here.

The H-D Museum Campus Walking Tour is the best way to absorb Harley-Davidson history and culture in the great outdoors. You can download a PDF of the campus map by clicking right here.

MUST-SEE EXHIBITS
Stevan Dohanos painting, “Tex’s Motorcycle”
Dohanos, a frequent contributor to the “Saturday EveningPost,” enjoyed capturing his subjects as they were in real life. For this piece, Dohanos found his muse on a street in Georgetown, Conn. “Tex” Keller had decorated his saddle bags with nickel spots and covered his saddle with fur, putting his own flair on the Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Though Dohanos probably didn’t title the work, many motorcyclists now refer to it as “Tex’s Motorcycle” and prints of it can be found in shops across the country. The original has found a home at the H-D Museum.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (open now)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near-constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”

Taming the Road in Style 
Closes Nov. 8
The earliest Harley-Davidson motorcycles had the same suspensions as bicycles of the time: none at all. The roads were a hodgepodge of dirt, stone, and other materials. Bumps were everywhere; suspension was needed. Comfort became a never-ending challenge for Harley-Davidson engineers. It was redefined by each new generation of rider and changing environments: over the decades, roads were paved, engine power and speed increased, and motorcyclists traveled faster over longer distances and craved smoother rides.  In response, Harley improved the seats, redesigned many frames, or added new suspension systems. Sometimes these changes were small, sometimes dramatic. These tweaks and additions added up over the years. The first Harley-Davidson vehicles resembled bicycles. Years later, bicycles and motorcycles looked nothing alike. The pursuit of comfort had transformed motorcycles. Taming the Road in Style examines this history, from the dawn of the bicycle to the launch of the new Harley-Davidson Softail models. 

SAVE THE DATE
“Off-Road Harley-Davidson”
Opening Nov. 21, 2020
In the decades before America paved its highways, early riders had to be prepared for all sorts of terrain: sand, clay or dirt – and wandering those makeshift byways were Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Today, it’s called off-road or adventure touring; back then it was just called riding. Since 1903, Harley-Davidson motorcycles proved their toughness by riding over wooded hills, through stone-choked creek beds and up mountain sides. “Off-road Harley-Davidson” tells the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who rode them and the adventures they shared.

Pabst, beer, 360 MAGAZINE

Pabst’s Milwaukee Taproom Will Re-Open as Captain Pabst’s Pilot House

Pioneered by Captain Frederick Pabst, Pabst Brewing Company (Pabst) has been brewing beer since the late 1800s. 175 years later, the Captain’s vision, foresight, and commitment to excellence transformed a small-scale brewery into one of the nation’s largest and most admired. Today, driven by these same inspirations, Pabst proudly unveils a new luxury beer brand, Captain Pabst, and launches with its flagship IPA, Seabird.

Seabird is a highly sessionable, premium India Pale Ale, brewed with Magnum, Citra, Cascade, and Mosaic hops. The beer takes its name from Captain Fredrick Pabst’s last steamship, which was a catalyst in his decision to enter the beer business. Caught near the shore in December of 1863 during an unexpected storm, Captain Fredrick Pabst strategically beached “The Seabird” on the sands of Whitefish Bay on Lake Michigan without casualties. With irreversible damage to The Seabird, Captain Pabst made the fateful decision to walk away from the sea. Hanging up his captain hat, he purchased a brewery that would eventually bare his name and deliver some of the most iconic American beer brands of all time.

Seabird is available now, as a Midwest exclusive, for sale across Wisconsin and the greater Chicago area. 

“We’re lucky enough to be the stewards of so many great, classic American trademarks.  But none of those marks really highlight the person or the people that founded the original brands,” said Matt Bruhn, Pabst General Manager. “We thought creating something new, based on someone who played such an integral part in pioneering brewing in this country, was a really romantic and deserving story that consumers would be interested in hearing.”

Pabst is also transforming its taproom in Milwaukee and relaunching it as Captain Pabst’s Pilot House. The taproom offers a beer hall experience in the heart of Milwaukee, Pabst’s hometown, fit to honor the Captain and the brewing traditions that have lasted over a century.

 “Captain Frederick Pabst was wild; his life was filled with random endeavors that all seemed to stem from his adventurous spirit and his willingness to push the boundaries.  To do things right, but differently. Here at Pabst we can certainly appreciate a life lived that way – it’s closely aligned to our values” added Bruhn.

The Pilot House will focus on imaginative craft beer offerings while paying homage to Captain Pabst’s historic recipes. In addition to Seabird, the Captain Pabst Signature Series will feature new and exciting, quality brews the Captain would have crafted generations ago. Beyond beer, the venue experience includes the addition of a craft spirits program, where spirits are blended and barrel aged in-house, an expanded merch offering, and a loyalty program called the “Blue Jacket Club.”

The Captain Pabst Pilot House will have its grand opening and reveal March 28, 2020 – Captain Pabst’s 184th birthday.

To celebrate the launch, LEGO Master Builders created a life-size model of the motorcycle, complete with silver coated parts, Wi-Fi animation control, sound and light effects to imitate a real Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® and 6,000 special LEGO elements. The extraordinary creation took 865 hours to build, is made of 69,569 pieces and will be on display at the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum for a limited time.

EXHIBITS
“Daredevils: A Century of Spine-Tingling Spectacles” (through Sept. 8)
Step right up and behold amazing displays of danger and derring-do! Daredevils have thrilled audiences for centuries. What began with horse trick riders in circuses inspired new generations of entertainers on bicycles, motorcycles, cars – even flying sofa chairs. From touring thrill shows to Hollywood movie stunt work, “Daredevils” celebrates the exciting history of these death-defying entertainers who spend countless hours perfecting their exploits. Witness how incredible feats from long ago inspire modern-day risk-takers. The H-D Museum cordially invites one and all, children big and small to behold how daredevils are born! Please note: Select photos from the exhibit can be found at this page.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (Opens Sept. 6)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near-constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.
“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”
We invite you to explore our collaboration with three Milwaukee area museums, featuring #MilwaukeeMade exhibits. http://www.visitmilwaukee.org/milwaukee-made/
