Cool views of the new Harley Museum

As the Harley-Davidson Museum continues to rise from its parcel at the east end of Canal Street, it's easy to see that it will make a fitting anchor to what will be quite an area with Potawatomi Bingo Casino, Miller Park and, of course, Downtown  minutes away.

What's not so easy to see is how this development truly hugs the water at its 20-acre site at 6th and Canal Streets near Downtown. The above photos illustrate this.

On a boat trip recently, I got to see the "back" of this budding museum that sits on the Menomonee River. It's pretty cool, and really illustrates how the museum will connect with the city.

When it's done, hopefully in summer 2008, the 130,000 square foot development will include exhibit space as well as a restaurant, café, retail shop, meeting space, special events facilities, and the company's archives.

While it's still warm out, take a boat ride up the Menomonee and watch the Harley Museum grow.
