  • Really like this place! They have new tractors in the showroom every few months I think. Got a lot of John Deere history in it. Very informative and fun! I'll be back as often as I can!  more »

  • Great exhibit, very informative. I'm a city guy and I found it very interesting. There's even a huge tractor that kids (and adults) can climb into. Gift shop had good prices on hats too so I had to get one.
  • Great history on Deere's tractors but even more so on their presence in the Cedar Valley. It'd be nice if there were more engines to look at, plenty of tractors. Great for young kids
  • Very neat interactive museum! I only have a slight interest in tractors but I had an enjoyable time following my 3 boys through this free museum. They also offer a free tour of the factory but you have to get tickets 48 hours in advance. Lots of neat videos to watch and things to try. There is even a couple tractors you can climb on and one is GIGANTIC! Overall a nice place to visit. Nice bathrooms too
  • Meaningful experience for adults and children. Good information on equipment and business aspects of the company. And it's free with friendly guides!
  • Great place! Very helpful people. Nice muesum.
