Ollie & the Harley...Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin!!

 Ollie not only likes Hummingbirds, but he likes "Hogs" (AKA Harley-Davidson Motorcycles), too!

The other day, Ollie got to visit a very cool place.  He got to visit The Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

 This museum is a North American museum near downtown, Milwaukee, Wisconsin celebrating the more than 100 year history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

The 130,000-square-foot, three building complex on 20 acres along the Menomonee River bank contains more than 450 Harley-Davidson motorcycles and hundreds of thousands of artifacts from the Harley-Davidson Motor Company's 106 year history.

This museum houses permanent exhibitions, spread throughout two floors, in addition to temporary exhibits and the motor company’s archives. The complex also includes a restaurant, caf√©, retail shop, and special event spaces.

Also on display are historic Harley-Davidson items that tell the company's story and history, such as photographs, posters, advertisements, clothes, trophies, video footage of vintage and contemporary motorcycling, and interactive exhibits, including 10 motorcycles that visitors can sit on.

Sounds like a neat place to visit, huh?

Once inside, Ollie and his buddy, Jimmy 4 (Quatro), found a lot of neat and interesting exhibits.

I'm not sure if Ollie was allowed to sit on any "hogs" or bikes, but I'm going to guess probably not.  That's okay though, because just seeing this museum was probably enough for Ollie.

I'm not sure where Ollie will be spotted next.  Keep your eyes open for him, dear readers, because you never know when he might show up in your town!

And That's What Sarah Said!!!
