Just saw this posted on the JSOnline site. It looks like I may have a reason to visit this museum after all. Smile I was unable to find the cache coordinates that are supposedly on the www.h-dmuseum.com site. (Or is finding the coordinates just part of the "treasure hunt"?)

Harleys from 'Indiana Jones' coming to Milwaukee museum

By Stanley A. Miller II of the Journal Sentinel

Posted: Mar. 30, 2009 2:28 p.m.

Motorcycles from "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" are coming to the Harley-Davidson Museum, the museum announced Monday.

Two Harley-Davidson Softail motorcycles ridden by Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf will star in a new display opening Friday, and visitors will be able to sit in the one used in all of the stunts and have a photo taken.

The museum also will open a special temporary exhibit with snakes - Indiana Jones' most feared form of wildlife - on April 11 to help attendees get in the tomb-raiding, mystery-solving, action-adventure spirit of the exhibit, which runs through April.

For the movie, Harley-Davidson supplied five motorcycles that were customized by Justin Kell, a builder based in Los Angeles, to fit the 1950s setting of the movie.

Two bikes were returned to Harley: one that was ridden by LaBeouf and Ford, and another that was used for the scene's stunts. Both will be on display.

Other "Indiana" activities on the agenda:

Hands on: Visitors can handle the snakes on display from noon to 2 p.m. April 11 and learn about their habitat during a presentation from the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.

Hidden treasures: Attendees are encouraged to explore the museum, search for the hidden artifacts among the exhibits and plunder the loot. Visitors who find all the treasures win a prize.

Time travel: Each Thursday at 2 p.m., members of the museum's archives team will explain how the movie motorcycles were transformed from new 2006 Softails into the vintage machines for the movie.

Tomb raiding: Visitors are invited to bring a GPS receiver with them and find two geocache stashes hidden somewhere on the museum's 20-acre estate. The coordinates are posted at www.h-dmuseum.com .

The Museum website under special events says to check back later for the coordinates. I wonder who the reviewer is that is holding it up? LOL

These may not be listed on GC...if you look at the web-site you will see that they are listed as "Geo-Caches" and "Geocache Stashes" and not "Geocaches"...this could remove GC from the hides. But we'll just have to keep an eye on the HD website. It does sound like there will be a lot of fun stuff involved in the exhibit. Also, and maybe most importantly, the exhibit runs from April 3 through the end of April...perhaps the coordinates won't be posted until the event begins. Just a thought.

In case anyone is wondering...we went to Milwaukee to go to the Museum...we'd been wanting to go and this was a perfect reason to do so. There are 2 hides but the only thing they have to do with Geocaching is...well, nothing!

You can get the coordinates with a paid admission and go in search of what is meant to be a family oriented museum hide. They give a basic description of caching but list their info as "Geo-caching" so it's pretty much on it's own.

If you're looking for a fun way to spend a couple of hours we recommend the museum...it's pretty cool! The rest is just a bonus.

If you head there for this event, don't forget to pick up GC1FK3M while you are there.
