Since we don't live on a farm, seeing these machines up close and personal was amazing. My kids had a great time climbing on them and sitting in them.

This was a destination stop for our road trip. My wife is from a John Deere farming family and we wanted somewhere to stop on the way to the national parks. Farming history was interesting and the tractors were fun to climb all over. The only improvement I would like to see is more antique dark equipment. A progression of... More

Moline is my hometown and one of my grandfathers retired from John Deere so I have ALWAYS had a spot in my heart for that company. That being said this is a beautiful building and a great place to visit no matter what your age! There are workers (or volunteers???) that will give you a tour if you want and... More

Excellent place to visit! Very educational! Grandchildren were totally engrossed! Loved getting up on the equipment on the display floor! Video is very informative and I suggest watching that with the children.

Very educational and interesting for all ages. Our 6 year old grandson loved climbing on the equipment, and our 13 year olds enjoyed all of the information about John Deere, as well as world information. Do not miss going there when visiting the Quad-Cities.
