Taken from Youtube.com:

All night time-lapse video of sky over Texas Star Party in Fort Davis, Texas taken with 15mm fisheye lens. Stars, constellations, meteors and satellites can be seen passing overhead for most of the evening. The video ends with the bright galactic core of the Milky Way rising above the horizon and overhead.

I don't think you could, even if you were there... This is a time-lapse of long-exposure photos though I'm not sure how long each exposure would've taken. A similar pictures on the linked Web site was exposed for about 5 minutes...

While sometimes observable, I think the Milky Way will always be very faint to the human eye.
