LEGO Mystery Mural

Saturday, November 2 and Sunday, November 3 | 10AM-6PM

The Harley-Davidson Museum and LEGO invite all Milwaukeeans to make your mark on a piece of Harley-Davidson history. Visit the H-D Museum on Saturday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, Nov. 3 as a 11-foot-by-4-foot mural is built by you … yes, you! Kids of all ages are welcome to pop into the H-D Museum lobby to snap LEGO bricks into place and help build the mural that will remain on display until spring.

But the merrymaking doesn’t stop there. Kids ages 3-7 will be able to take a spin on the all-new H-D™ IRONe™ electric balance bikes. Dress for the weather and experience the thrill of these twist-and-go bicycles in Motorcycle Plaza. Plus, Airbrush tattoos, hands-on activities and specials at MOTOR Bar & Restaurant (did someone say Build-Your-Own Mac & Cheese, Hot Coco Station and a Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary bar?!) promise to bring ear-to-ear smiles to all. Support your community with the 8th Annual Toy & Book Drive. Donate a Toy or Book to the Milwaukee Child Advocacy Center (MCAC) in affiliation with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and receive 15% off at MOTOR Bar & Restaurant.
